    Apts & landlords don't report to credit bureaus..

    No, because rent is not credit, so it cannot boost your credit score.

    Rent is not credit.

    Credit is when someone loans you money, and you repay them as agreed.

    Paying for services when the bill is due is not credit because nobody loaned you money.

    Credit score is a way of showing that you repay money you've borrowed, not that you pay bills on time.

    No, rent payments have nothing to do with your debt ratio or credit score.  However having a good rent payment history will give you a solid record when looking for a new apartment to rent.

    No. Rent is not credit.

    rent is not reported to credit bureaus, it's not a "debt" being repaid, which is also a good thing cuz they dont report your late payments either. The only thing they'll report is if you caused enough damage when you move out and your deposit is not enough to cover it
