Tenant Screening Reports

Tenant Credit Reports, Criminal Checks & Eviction Reports

(Free for Landlords!)

Tenant screening reports – chargeable directly to your applicants.

Full credit reports with FICO score. Nationwide criminal background checks. Nationwide eviction reports. And you can request a rental application at the same time!

Full Credit Reports

SparkRental offers full credit reports, available from Experian or Transunion!

What’s the difference, you ask?

Most “mom and pop” landlords don’t want to go through the hassle of a site inspection by the credit bureaus, in order to run credit reports. Through our partnership with Experian, you don’t have to get a site inspection!

The applicant approves your request electronically, and as soon as they do, the credit reports are released to you. When the applicant approves your request, they’re charged directly for the credit report and other tenant screening reports.

Larger landlords and property managers often want to be able to run instant tenant credit reports on their own, without the tenant having to approve the request. We’re partnered with Transunion to offer instant, landlord-initiated credit reports.

The catch? For instant tenant credit reports, you need to have a one-time site inspection. The credit bureau sends a representative out to your office/home office, to make sure it’s secure enough for you to pull sensitive credit reports without applicant approval first.

Oh, and did we mention that Pro members can select who pays for the reports?

Nationwide Criminal Background Checks

Want a violent ex-con living in your property? What about a sex offender? Or hey, what about a check scam artist?

We have you covered, with our nationwide criminal background checks. Federal, state, and local criminal records – all compiled into one report.

And yes, we check the sex offender registry, too.

Not only can criminal tenants be dangerous to you, they can be dangerous to neighbors and other nearby tenants. Physical danger aside, criminals who have stolen from others in the past are not exactly trustworthy to pay the rent on time!

Nationwide Eviction Reports

Want to include eviction reports with your tenant credit report and criminal background check? No problem.

We actually feel strongly that the eviction history report is the most important measure of all – after all, that’s what you really want to know, right? Whether a renter has ever broken their lease agreement before, and needed to be evicted?

Find out if your applicant has a clean history or whether they’re a professional tenant bouncing from one lease to the next, always needing to be evicted for their landlord to be rid of them.

You can either run the reports instantly, or request them to be tenant-authorized.

Note: For instant credit reports, you will need a one-time site inspection. It’s the law! But even without the site inspection, you can still run tenant-authorized credit reports, and run criminal and eviction reports instantly.

Charge the tenant screening reports directly to the applicant, so you don’t even have to collect an application fee!

Running Tenant Credit Reports, Criminal Checks & Eviction Reports in Under 60 Seconds

Brian walks through the process of requesting reports. If you’d rather pay for the reports yourself, you can run instant reports instead.

Free Online Rental Application

Tenant screening starts with a detailed rental application. After all, what good is a credit report if you would never have accepted the renter anyway, based on their 90-pound pit bull?

Our rental application is free (good start, right?), can be e-signed, and has fields that renters can type directly into. No printing necessary! Just email a copy to your applicants, they can fill it out instantly, e-sign, and email it right back.

Happy tenant screening!
