The Tenant Screening process typically begins when the prospective tenant (each adult applicant) completes a rental application, pays an application fee and perhaps a holding deposit.
Rental applications are designed to collect personally identifying information (name, social security number, and date of birth, etc.), address, employment, criminal and eviction history. A signature is generally required, attesting to the accuracy of information provided, agreeing to certain terms and conditions and authorizing procurement of a tenant screening report.
Seamless Property’s Tenant screening reports contain the following elements:
• Consumer credit report (with or without a score) – from one of the three national credit bureaus (Experian, Equifax or Transunion).
• Eviction records search
• Criminal records search
• Sex offender registry search
• Specially designated nationals search (frequently referred to as an OFAC search)
• Rental references
• Employment verifications
• Recommendation – based on the landlord’s criteria (parameters)
