Question: Will Breaking My Lease Hurt My Credit Score?
Since apartment complexes don’t typically report your payment status to the credit bureaus
, the lease breaking itself won’t affect your credit score. However, your landlord could report any unpaid rent or lease breaking fees to the credit bureaus or to a debt collector who would report to the credit bureau. That delinquent debt reporting will affect your credit score and could keep you from renting an apartment in the future.
