Landlord Credit Check at ClearScreening.com
A landlord credit check is essential for evaluating potential tenants. Whether you’re managing one property or one hundred properties, a landlord’s goal is to find a tenant who will adhere to the terms of their rental agreement. This means finding a tenant who is responsible enough to pay rent on a consistent basis. A useful way to help evaluate a potential tenant is to run a landlord credit check. ClearScreening provides quick and easy credit reports from TransUnion, one of the three credit bureaus.
What Is in a Landlord Credit Check?
A landlord credit check gives you access to specific financial information and a full history of an applicant’s credit activities. The credit report will list all the applicant’s personal details such as their name, telephone, social security number, date of birth and information regarding their current/previous addresses as well as current/past employers. The tenant credit report will also list all credit accounts including payment history for accounts with retail stores, financial companies, banks and mortgage companies. Other types of information found in a landlord credit check are the applicant’s FICO score, warnings and collections.
