Tenant Screening

Tenant PI strives to provide our customers with the most comprehensive and affordable screening tools available. For more than a decade, customers have relied on Tenant and The PI Company to help minimize their daily tasks while providing them with affordable tenant screening services and unmatched customer service.

We continually are researching cutting-edge screening products which assist us in developing new ways to help pre-screen and eliminate bad tenants before they are housed. With Tenant PI’s comprehensive web-based screening tools, you will have at your fingertips the ability to:

  • Verify Past Rental History
  • Collect Debt
  • Prevent Housing Undesirable Tenants through Comprehensive Nationwide Criminal Screening

Nationwide Criminal Reports


Tenant PI’s nationwide criminal background report includes a search of criminal records, aliases, address histories, Social Security Trace and Validation, and the National Sex Offender Database – all for one low price. Running a Social Security Trace and Validation report insures that the number has not been reported on the Death Matrix, and this report includes an Office of Foreign Asset Controls Federal Database search as well. Tenant PI’s National Sex Offender Search includes current and historical sex offender registration records from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico.

Credit Reports


We offer access to all three national credit bureaus: TransUnion, Experian and Equifax. Credit reports will help you identify tenants who have not displayed financial responsibility in the past. Our instant credit reports are easy to read and Fair Credit Reporting Act compliant. 

Federal & County Reports


County criminal reports are retrieved through a network of court researchers. This report may include felonies and misdemeanors dating back seven years as well as:

  • degree of the offense
  • case information including numbers, filing dates, defendants, trial dates
  • disposition and sentencing information

Federal searches will help capture major crimes including embezzlement, kidnapping, drug trafficking and others that would not show up on the national, state or county level.


Evictions


These reports from Tenant PI give you access to eviction records from all 50 states. With these reports, you recieve the following information:

    • full name
    • applicant’s date of birth
    • address of eviction
    • file number and date
    • plaintiff, judgement and comments associated with the case
