All About Our Instant Tenant Screening Reports
Rentals.com has partnered with RentSpree and trusted credit bureau Transunion to provide you the following tenant screening reports:
Credit Report & Score
Review how an applicant treats both creditors and their own finances. Our TransUnion SmartMove report uses a soft credit inquiry that has no effect on an applicant’s score. Easily review all payment history, tradelines, collections, inquiries and more. Scores always remain confidential and are only available to you and the applicant.
Criminal Background Check
It’s essential to use a background check when screening prospective tenants. We search through more than 200 million criminal records to provide a comprehensive tenant criminal background check. Records include state and national databases, the Most Wanted Lists, the National Sex Offender Registry and court records.
* Not available for properties in NJ. Background Checks from WY, DE, SD, MA, HI and CO not included in the report.
Nationwide Eviction-related Proceedings
A nationwide tenant eviction history search is included within our rental eviction-related proceedings. We utilize one of the largest eviction databases covering all 50 states and Washington D.C. Our detailed report includes writs and warrants of eviction, court records and tenant judgments and is easy to understand.
** Not available for properties in NY.
