Tenant Screening Companies

Landlords routinely use consumer reports to evaluate potential tenants for residential property.  These reports can include eviction histories, credit information, criminal history information, and other personal data.  When applying as a tenant for an apartment or other residential property, you should ask the landlord if it will be pulling your consumer report(s). If the answer is yes, you should ask the landlord for the name of the consumer reporting agency, and obtain a copy of your consumer report to ensure that all information is accurate. Negative information in a consumer report could cause you to lose a rental opportunity. For this reason, if at all possible, we recommend holding off on submitting your lease application until after you can fact-check your report(s).
