Can Covid-19 debts be reported to Credit Bureaus in the US?

FrontLobby does not allow landlords or property managers to report Covid- 19 pandemic debts in the United States

Due to the evolving economic and regulatory landscape around eviction moratoriums, rental assistance, and rental payment policies, FrontLobby does not allow landlords or property managers to report Covid- 19 pandemic debts in the United States. This policy is to ensure Landlords and Tenants are protected and compliant with local regulations.

A Covid-19 debt is defined as unpaid rent caused by the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and incurred between January 31, 2020 and September 30, 2021.

In the case of debts, we encourage all parties to explore government programs for rental payment assistance or to explore a payment plan option. Additional details on how we facilitate payment plans may be found HERE.

If the debt was not caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, or there is a monetary judgement or ruling, or the debtor has violated the agreed upon payment plan, then debts may be reported to the Credit Bureaus.
