For immediate release:

January 5, 2022

California Governor Gavin Newson signed SB 1157 which requires landlords of affordable housing developments the offer its tenants the opportunity to request the rent payment be reported to at least one of the federal credit bureaus. The tenant must make this request in writing.

The Housing Authority of the City of San Buenaventura (HACSB) is the largest affordable housing landlord in the city of Ventura. Therefore, the HACSB is mandated to offer rent reporting as an option to all its residents. The HACSB has partnered with RentTrack to provide its residents the option to have their rent payments be reported to the credit bureaus or a credit bureau of their choice.

Residents who are registered through Rent Café will have received email correspondence regarding this matter. All other residents will receive correspondence via mail. Please visit this link for more information on RentTrack ( 

SB 1157 has an expiration date of July 2025, unless amended by future state law. The HACSB WILL NOT automatically begin reporting rent payments to any of the credit bureaus. The resident MUST make this request in writing. This applies to all residents that reside in properties owned or managed by the HACSB.

If you have any questions, please contact your property manager.

Thank you.
