Each report will provide you with a tenant credit check, score, and a criminal background check. The PRO report, which is our most popular tenant screening report, will also provide you with a tenant eviction report.

Best part? Renters pay for the report unless you want to pick up the tab yourself. Need help reading your report? Check out this great article on How to Read a Tenant Screening Report.

Make sure they can pay rent!

Credit reports can give you peace of mind knowing that potential tenants are financially responsible. Our tenant screening reports include an extensive credit check so you know your potential renter’s current financial status, and if they have any potential risk factors. You’ll see:

  • Previous late payments or delinquencies
  • Open and closed lines of credit
  • Fixed payments on things like student loans
  • Debt sent to collection agencies
  • Inquiries for loans or other lines of credit
  • Judgments or bankruptcies on public record
  • Indicators of fraud
  • Social security number verification

There is a range, and we will guide you.

TransUnion, our screening partner, will give you recommendations on acceptable credit score ranges for a prospective tenant. We partnered with TransUnion, a trusted credit report agency, to give you recommendations on acceptable credit score ranges for a prospective tenant. Typically, a TransUnion credit score between 560-850 is an acceptable range for renters. Renters with credit scores of 523 and below pose a risk for late payments.
