FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between the Tenant Screening Report and a Background Check Report?
Both reports include our Private Eye Background Check Report which is a comprehensive background personal history and/or detailed background company history if requested. It includes complete nationwide data from every court in all 50 states for all evictions, judgments, liens, bankruptcies and foreclosures + detailed personal address history, real estate ownership, etc.
Ordering a Tenant Screening Report requires you to enter a valid Social Security Number for the person for which you are requesting a report and it also contains the Bank and Debtor report which includes recent collection efforts, credit inquiries and currently open trade lines. We offer the Tenant Screening Report as a superior alternative to simply ordering a credit report which often misses many key bits of information which are vital to evaluating a rental application. Prospective tenants often lie about their background history and financial condition. We aim to provide you with the ability to avoid bad tenants by arming you with a relevant background history and give you the flexibility of receiving a report with or without recent open collection accounts, depending on your needs.

However, sometimes we get requests for a person with a very common name with vague address information. For example, finding the correct Robert Smith in Chicago, IL would be virtually impossible unless we had further information to go off of such as a SSN, date of birth, specific previous address, other associated family members, etc.
