What Is a Credit Check?
Whether you are a landlord with one rental property, an owner of multiple units or a property manager, running a credit check on potential tenants is a smart decision. ClearScreening offers fast and inexpensive credit checks without the hassle. We obtain our reports through TransUnion, one of the three credit bureaus. A ClearScreening credit check includes an applicant’s personal information (name, current/past addresses, social security number, date of birth and employer information), their credit and payment history (credit accounts with retails stores, finance companies and mortgages), any collections or tax liens, a FICO score as well as any warnings or red flags that show potential credit risks.
Why Run a Credit Check?
Running a credit check on a potential tenant is a great way to minimize the risk of entering into a rental agreement with a financially troublesome tenant. Tenants who are not able to pay their rent can negatively impact your bottom line and cause you undue stress and worry. Eviction processes are long and involved. Evaluating an applicant’s credit report is a great way to help avoid these unfortunate situations. A credit check will show you if an applicant consistently pays their credit cards or mortgage payments on time every month. With a credit report, you can also check to make sure an applicant has given you their correct personal information.
