Where does RentSpree get its screening reports?
RentSpree reports come from TransUnion SmartMove. Applicants are asked to provide their Social Security Number in order for TransUnion to generate their reports. The information on the reports is pulled from national public records related to the Social Security number provided by the applicant.
TransUnion SmartMove has over 40 years of trusted experience and is a safe, secure way to screen tenants. For the criminal background checks, TransUnion accesses nationwide databases such as the National Sex Offender Registry, Most Wanted Database, as well as state court records and criminal background databases.
As an agent/manager/owner, could I pay for the screening?
Yes. You can opt to pay for the screening. If you have selected to pay for the reports yourself, you will be asked to submit payment information when you open the reports from your dashboard. If you have selected to have the applicant pay, they will be asked to submit payment information after answering the identity verification questions, but before submitting to you. Accepted forms of payment are credit, debit, or prepaid cards.
