Hi,
I filed eviction against tenant. Before even he gets notice from court he evicted but now he owes me $1500. What is the procedure to report it to credit Bureau ?.

Do I have to send him any notice before reporting to Credit Bureau ?
Where do I report it ?. I do not have his SSN, can report based on his name and address and Phone ?

My property is in NJ

Were you awarded that rent in court as part of the eviction? Is it for time he was actually in possession of the property? Do you have a security deposit you can deduct it from?

Court date is not arrived yet since he vacated before that. Let say court will give a order in my favor to pay amount to me, but tenant does not pay me ? What can I do ? Can I report it to Credit agency ? Or I have to follow some other process to demand money and then I can report to credit agency ?

I honestly don't know how to report it to credit agencies. Once you are awarded the money, you can send him to collections. But I don't know how it will actually show up on his credit. I don't know if it actually qualifies since it is not a typical debt, but a legal issue. 

The eviction will show up on the right reports, as would something going to collections (although, that may only be things that started on the credit report, such as a car loan). 

You may just have to contact one of the bureaus and ask them. Let us know what you find.

Just curious, did you have a security deposit withheld? Also, was a place left clean or was there a lot of damage?
