    Default Credit Score and Rent Debt

    My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Maryland

    Does a former tenant who you are trying to collect rent from have a continuing decline in their credit score the longer they refuse to pay the owed rent.

    Only the largest of landlords report monthly rent status to the credit bureaus.

    Usually when a tenant is evicted the credit bureaus will pick up the eviction money judgment and report that on the credit report.

    If you have a money judgment against your prior tenant, you have a right to pull their credit report and check their current address, FICO score, employment etc.
