Peace of Mind

TransUnion uses state-of-the-art security procedures to ensure that the users requesting and consenting to a tenant background check really are who they say they are.

And because all your data is transferred to TransUnion using a secure, encrypted connection and NowRenting keeps no personal identification data, there’s no need to worry about identity theft.  That means no paper forms, no tedious record-keeping and no liability.

Complete History

TransUnion’s tenant background checks are comprehensive, accurate and safe.  They include a credit report, eviction history and criminal history check that covers all 50 states.  If a prospective tenant has a history indicating that they might represent a risk, you’ll know it.

Free for Landlords

NowRenting’s free pricing tier gives landlords access to background checks through TransUnion at no charge–the cost of the tenant background check is passed on to the applicant.

Optional Fee Upcharge

Application fees to cover administrative costs are a standard business practice: NowRenting allows landlords to increase the amount prospective tenants are charged for a background check and keep the difference.
