TenantScreeningUSA.com an online rental screening solution for small landlords and small apartment management companies now splits up data entry so the renter can enter their private information directly to a national credit bureau without ever having to surrender it to a landlord while still fulfilling their rental screening obligations.
Safe, Secure Tenant Checks from the Renters Point of View
Rental living is increasing at a rapid pace in the United States and will continue to do so over the next several years. With the credit and housing markets still in disarray, people are beginning to question the validity of home ownership and increasingly looking at rental property as a viable alternative. The task of finding a rental dwelling can be as demanding as that of home ownership. One goes out to find a property of their liking, tours the building and neighborhood, taking every consideration to make a sensible choice. While the process of gaining a rental agreement may not be as arduous as buying a house, inevitably one must fill out rental applications and agreements, and provide this information to a Property Manager, but is that step a safe one?
With all the data that exists, on-line Renters must be proactive in protecting their information. Identity theft continues to rise and shows no sign of slowing. Information has become too easy to acquire and manipulate for fraudulent reasons. Handing over a rental agreement that contains all your personal and financial information may not be a step one wishes to take in an environment prevalent with fraud.
One might ask: What can be done?
TenantScreeningUSA.com has the solution with their new SmartMove Platform. By creating a secure portal for data transfer, TenantScreeningUSA.com allows renters a safe, fast method to provide critical information to a landlord or Property Manager. Utilizing their website one can establish a unique password protected account. All pertinent information gathered, such as Social Security Number, Date of Birth and banking information, is encrypted and sent directly to TransUnion, a leading credit bureau with exceptional security provisions. It is important to note that your specific information is never sent to a landlord. All information exchange is handled directly between the individual and TransUnion on-line through a secure portal. The information gathered for a tenant recommendation is the same as any other traditional tenant check.
1. Credit History
2. Criminal Background
3. Evictions Records
4. Banking/Employment Data
This information is expected by any landlord or Property Manager to make a fully vetted decision. However there are significant benefits.
1. Secure on-line data transmission between renter and credit bureau, TransUnion. A credit report check initiated by a consumer does not have the same negative impact as a credit report request by a property owner.
2. Critical data is never held by outside sources, such as landlords and Property Managers.
3. SmartMove provides the landlord a recommendation to rent based on your information that you input into the system. Errors in data acquisition are greatly reduced.
4. Decisions are provided quickly. No more waiting around to see if you qualify.
5. A single decision can be provided for joint tenancy.
Renting an apartment or a house is a big decision.

Technology has advanced to the point that your peace of mind can be obtained by utilizing a system such as SmartMove provided by TenantScreeningUSA.com.
