TransUnion changed that with the patented SmartMove tenant screening product, adding convenience and wide accessibility into tenant background checks. In a nutshell, SmartMove allows rental history reports to be delivered to the landlord or rental property owner, real estate agent or whoever is in charge of screening applicants while protecting consumer information in a manner consistent with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and applicable regulations.
And… these tenant background checks are completely paperless and online.

A key to picking out the right renter is to have quality tenant background check information, including an eviction history check , to help you make your decision. And, TransUnion SmartMove tenant screening services offers exclusive benefits and features that are designed to help landlords make more informed decisions.
Along with tenant screening reports, SmartMove delivers a credit-based recommendation based on the applicant's ResidentScore. A landlord credit check is an important step to evaluate your applicant.
And, we know you base your leasing decision on more than just a credit profile or renter balance sheet. Make sure it covers and asks all the desired questions.
You need to be sure that you have as much information as possible on who you are going to rent to. Too many landlords make the mistake of not using a form that gives all the information they need to perform the necessary background checks that are so vital to finding a good tenant.
And a bad tenant can be a disaster! A bad tenant can do more than just stop paying the rent, though that's bad enough when it might take months to finally get them evicted out of your property. They might be criminals or sex offenders, and that kind of scenario can open you up to more than just financial woes. It can make you vulnerable to legal problems as well! But getting a complete history from your tenant can help protect you, by using that information to perform the proper background checking. We are happy to provide this free resource to help you get the most out of your rental property by avoiding these costly scenarios.
