Tenant Screening: Credit, Criminal, Eviction SSN Validation

With Rentec Direct it's easy for landlords and property managers to get set up for tenant screening.  Following these simple steps can have you set up to start screening your applicants today. 

Note: This helpful video begins with configuring your online rental application and follows with specific tenant screening information beginning at the 5:52 minute mark. 

Tenant Screening Options

In your Rentec Direct account: 

  1. Click on the Reports tab.
  2. Click on the Screening Reports button.

At this point, you'll have access to order County, State, and National Criminal Reports, Inmate Records, Sex Offender Reports, National Eviction Reports, SSN Validation with previous addresses, and Bankruptcies/Judgments/Liens  reports. 

However, you will need to submit our credit access application and provide a few requested documents before you'll have access to order credit reports from us through our program.  We offer two types of credit reports:

Tenant Credit Report Cards
A Tenant Credit Report Card has significant information regarding types and total amounts of debt as well as a credit score range. An example of a credit report card can be found here:  Credit Report Card Sample
Full Tenant Credit Reports (requires a site inspection with a $50 inspection fee) 

A Full Tenant Credit Report has very specific information about the creditors and payment history of debts as well as an exact FICO credit score. An example of a full credit report can be found here:  Full Credit Report

Applying for Full Credit Report Access

The credit access application can be filled out and submitted online by clicking the link displayed on the screen in the program, or it can be downloaded and then sent to us.  

After clicking the link, the screen will then guide you through your next steps.

We process screening applications daily and once yours is received we will review it to ensure it is complete and accurate and email you as soon as your account is ready to go.  To order a tenant screening report, return to Reports > Screening Reports and click 'Order A Report'.  

We also have a guide on how to order credit and criminal reports
