Rent To a Tenant You Can Trust

Whether you’ve been through an eviction yourself or heard the horror stories, a great rental experience starts with having the right tenant. Join the 300,000+ landlords that use TurboTenant to make an informed decision and find a tenant they trust.

How Tenant Screening Works

It’s straightforward and fast to run a tenant credit, background, and eviction check, even if you’ve never done it before. If you haven’t had the tenant fill out a rental application already, we recommend starting there.

1. Enter Their Email: Yep. That’s it. You don’t need their SSN or sensitive personal information. Screen them by entering their email or phone number. We’ll take care of the rest.

2. TurboTenant Verifies Their Identity: We automatically reach out to the tenant on your behalf to have them answer a few questions to verify their identity.

3. You Receive the Report: As soon as the tenant verifies their identity, you’ll get a notification telling you the screening report is ready to review.

Easy to use. Streamlines the process. Provides insight on renter compatibility.

What’s on the Screening Report?

Even if you’re a good judge of character, you need a snapshot of a tenant’s financials, criminal record, and eviction history. Our screening report shows:

The Tenant Pays for the Screening Report

You can manage the entire rental process for free! The majority of landlords have the tenant pay the $45 fee to cover the screening report. But if you’ve already collected a fee or just want to pay it yourself, you have that option.
