Unless you're rented your apartment from a bank it's highly unlikely they would ever report you to a credit agency-- that is one that would have any effect on your credit rating.

One of the things that interesting about getting a copy of your credit report is seeing who actualy reports information. Last time I checked it was only my credit card companies and cell phone provider.

Your LL could go to a collection agency but most of them don't seem to report either.

: Hi,

: I recently moved from my apartment in San Jose, CA. I was there for about 1 year. My landlord sent me an itemized list of repairs along with a notice to pay about $80, stating that my deposit of $500 dollars was not sufficient to cover the cost of repairs. The letter said if I did not pay, they would report me to the Credit Reporting Agencies and give me bad credit. Is this legal? I was unable to find any information about Landlord's rights to request more money from tenants than the Security Deposit.
