On the question at hand, you are looking at a FICO score from myFICO, right? Other scores from other sources may not be a FICO or if so, might be a different version of a FICO.
If you cancelled on March 1, I'll assume you were alerted to the status change of closed via a SW alert which would be an EQ FICO. SW alerts only show a net score change and while it throws out a reason behind the alert (assuming the change in lease status in your example), it doesn't necessarily mean your score changed as a result of that alert. For example, I once got a SW alert for +20 because I added an inquiry. Inquiries don't increase your FICO but it was another change that caused my score to increase that SW doesn't pick up on. In other words, your score could have changed due to something else, like changes in util, etc.
If you opened a new acct, you probably might see a FICO ding from that.
You really don't gain point by paying accts on time. You gain over years with the added age, but year-to-year likely won't help all that much.
myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.>> About myFICO
