According to Equifax, more than 7 million Canadians may have 2 or less credit accounts on their credit file, meaning they are considered to have limited credit history or are classified as a “thin” credit file. Therefore renter payment history reporting presents a great opportunity for both operators and renters(particularly for students, young professionals and newcomers) to kickstart an individual’s financial profile and help them secure other credit opportunities while improving timely payments. According to the studies conducted by Equifax:
70% of the GenZ and Millenial renters state that rent reporting would be a key differentiator when choosing their rental home. 73% of renters are more likely to pay rent on time if property managers reported rent payments.Equifax
