It would not affect your credit at all because you are merely the tenant and are renting the property. Since you do not own it, and the owner is the person that has the lien filed against them, it will not affect you or your credit.

Not adversely if you pay on time


yes and it is on your credit report for 10 years.


That depends if the place your renting is doing a credit check on you. Not all landlords do credit checks.


No, not unless the landlord requires a credit check before moving in. Many cases, they will still rent to you because renting is less risky than buying a home.


If you were a victim of credit card fraud your credit rating may is QUITE LIKELY to be affected.


YES. This will show up on your credit report as "Landlord/Tenant history". This will stay there for 7-10 years!


If your credit score is low, it can affect you renting a home, getting loans, or even getting a job. usually having many credit cards, or having credit card debt, can make you have low score. xD SWAG


Credit card affiliates offer credit card customers exclusive deals and incentives for using a credit card. This does not affect an application as the enrollment in the program is voluntary.


Pay your bills. I don't know that a credit inquiry will lower your credit score. What does affect your credit score is not paying. Even if you pay late, it shows willingness to pay. But as far as someone checking your credit, I don't think that will actually affect your credit score. Pay your bills. I don't know that a credit inquiry will lower your credit score.

Credit scores are individual and your marriage to someone with a lower credit score than yours will not affect your credit score. Credit scores are based on how much debt you owe versus how much credit you have available, how you make your monthly payments, etc. It has nothing to do with your spouse's credit. That said, their poor credit may affect your ability, as a couple, to get the best rates on credit that you seek together, e.g. if you attempt to buy a house together. It wouldn't impact your personal credit, but it would impact the loan offer you receive.


No, your credit rating is separate from your spouse. If he or she cosigns it will only effect his or her credit rating.



When you ask a possible creditor to inquire about your credit, it may affect your credit. This is because it implies that you're possibly opening a new line of credit. But you have the right to look at your credit report without affecting your credit. When you request your credit report it's called a "consumer pull" and has no affect on your credit.



Yes, liens against real property are very damaging to one's credit score and can make it difficult to obtain future credit.


==Answer == Not in any way. Your credit rating is only determined by how YOU handle your credit on anything that is in your name.


If you have them run all of your credit checks within a fifteen day period it only counts as one hit against your credit.


Not normally ... unless there are already points against the consumer.


This depends on your credit history (or lack of).


Yes. I'd never dream of renting to anyone without checking their credit first.

When it comes to renting a car, you will require a valid driver's license and a credit card in your name. As long as your driver's license is valid, and you have not been suspended or told not to drive by law enforcement, you should be able to rent a car without any problems.


The cosigner's credit will only be affected if the person that they cosign for defaults on the loan. The bankruptcy will not affect the cosigners credit.


A landlord that has a choice of renting to a person who has a repo and a person who doesnt will likely choose the NON repoed person. Why?? They manage to PAY their bills SOMEHOW. YES, it LOWERS your credit score making it harder to get credit. Rent is a form of credit.


Yes, if they get a judgment against you, and most do. Once the judgment has been entered and is public record, that judgment will go on your credit reports and it will tank your credit scores.
