"Rental data is an area of growing interest, as it can potentially add payment information to the credit histories of millions of consumers who have little or no credit history," said Anthony Sprauve, director of public relations for FICO. "The compilation of this data is still in its early stages, compared to standard credit-bureau data. As a result, it is not reported consistently enough to the credit bureaus to be a component of many people's FICO scores."
"a person with a FICO score of 680 will see their score drop between 45 and 65 points. Someone with a FICO score of 780 will see their score drop between 105-125 points," Sprauve said.
