Q: I’m just out of college, trying to establish a credit history. Will getting a lease for my first apartment help?
A: Your rental payment history will become part of your standard credit report
, and may be factored into credit scores such as your VantageScore®. That's one way people who don't have an established credit history can become scoreable for the first time and begin building credit through demonstrating that you’re responsibly paying your rent.
