They told me they no longer have that option.. What do you recommend or do you know of other service outside of mrlandlord that do not do the collections pursued? Thank you for take the time to read and reply. --67.197.xxx.xx

I'm curious cl. What do you have to lose by letting the debt reporting service go the extra step and attempt to collect the past due money for you? Even if they are attempting to collect, you still have the option of trying the collect the money owed on your own if you wish. --72.214.xx.x

What does the collection business makes money off of just debt reporting service? What are you willing to pay for debt reporting?

These companies are in business to take a portion of the debt as their payment for their work.

Moshe, I do not want pursued. If companies are not getting money and so am i.. I am not getting money either. I only need just put info there so that all other landlord can see and be warned. That's all. I am not asking for lecture. Are you going to help or not? --67.197.xxx.xx

Then you have few options. There were several posts on this ever since the credit reporting agencies are excluding judgements that do not include specific identifying info.

If you want to have current tenants payment history recorded, both good and not good) the there are some pay master svs that work with Equifax on this. If all you want is to make certain a money judgement against a former tenant shows up on their credit report then you need to use a collection agency.

I could be wrong but from what I've read and been told by some of these companies is the only way collections agencies can post debt is if they are retained to collect a debt (or own the debt outright). Conversely I don't think they can begin collections without first reporting it to the credit bureaus.

I guess for those who live in states where wage garnishment is an option you you could always try that.

If you want a collection agency to report your debt, try paying them. I would expect that, for the price of reporting & collecting, that they would be willing to forget the collecting part.

But the basic lesson that I am sharing with you is that the collection agency (who does the reporting) needs to be paid. --47.139.xx.xxx

NC investor, Thanks. mrlandlord used to have the option if the owner do not want to roll over to collection but they told me today they dont have that option anymore. I plan to pay just to put info there and let it sit there so that all other landlords can see it and be warned. I just want to help other landlords. I am being nice by helping other landlords to watch out for that tenant. If I ever find that kind of option I needed. Do you know if I can contact directly equifax and just report it without pursued after I pay to enroll? --67.197.xxx.xx

Moshe, Yes right. That is what I want to do just pay and put info in and leave it without pursued.... mrlandlord used to have that option but today they told me they dont have this option anymore. So this is the reason I post it on here to find out where to find that kind of option I am looking for. Do you know? --67.197.xxx.xx

No, I don't know.

But I imagine that that option is now seen to be unprofitable, and so it is not worth the while of the agency to do it.

Very funny Vee, you and Ken cannot get any - not one red cent. LOL. But to your advantage you will find tenant to avoid. My goal is to help other landlords to watch out. Apparently Vee and Ken do not have the knowledge regarding the option I am looking for. --67.197.xxx.xx

Message:

cl, I am not sure what this option does, most judgements are picked up automatically by the credit agencies so what we check on a tenant it would show evicted in somewhere Indiana and a 234 bux judgement is unpaid, when I find this (and I find many) I ask them to clear this up so the manager/owner will have it cleared off the court website, many think the judgement is nothing and so they acquire several without a care, then possibly hire a credit clearing company to do something but all they do is stall for awhile and let a few go away after 7 years has elapsed then tell the client - hey you have to only pay 5 more and you are all cleared - we did what we could... --76.188.xxx.xx

Ken, Not only to warn other landlords but also to stall on tenant preventing tenant to buy something or move in as long as possible. Tenant will feel miserable or frustrating not getting what they want. --67.197.xxx.xx

Ken, this cl person must have won lottery and needs to wash away rather than pay taxes on the earnings - can't very well profit from this business giving away damages. Heck I am rethinking this now, You can have it all Ken if he lets me move in to one and I will make the doors drivein style, then go to another one and cut the roof open for a telescope... --76.188.xxx.xx

I did not realize that. I thought once you turned it over could not.

VEE:

The problem is that we will be seeing fewer, if any, judgements due to a lawsuit that resulted in 31 states agreeing not to allow judgements to be included on credit reports unless they include SS#, DOB, name and address which most do not.

The mortgage companies are concerned about this and Lexis Nexis is now providing them with a report that shows all judgements which we cannot access. --71.75.xx.xx

Ken I was going to make the doors drive thru type - assisted by motorcycle, and cut open the roof to enable a telescope to turn around so I can get my new medical leaves burning and look at the stars and whatever else is floating around - hehe... --76.188.xxx.xx

cl,

Just because you report it does not mean the agency will be able to collect anything.

But I'm confused...you want to "punish" the res with a bad mark on their credit report but not collect the honest money owed to you. Collecting the money will help them learn to honor their commitments. Dropping it rewards bad behavior and teaches them to stiff the next LL.

A mark on their CR will not teach them anything, in fact they will probably never know it's there. How many res actually look at their report. And most LLs don't use CRs, just the smart ones.

BRAD --68.51.xx.xxx
