We’re excited to announce that NowRenting’s new Background Check feature is fully operational.
Background checks are acquired through our partner, TransUnion, one of the three major US credit reporting agencies — so you can trust that they’ll always be accurate, comprehensive and safe. Background checks include a credit report, eviction history report and criminal history report from all fifty states; everything you need to make the right decision. Best of all, with the recent addition of NowRenting’s free account tier, background checks can be completed at absolutely no cost to you — passing the cost on to the applicant is as easy as one click.
Applicants can rest easy too, since their personal identifying information is passed straight to TransUnion through a secure, encrypted connection; neither NowRenting nor the landlord has access to their SSN. That means no paper forms, no tedious record-keeping and no liability.
And for ultimate convenience, NowRenting background checks are completely mobile-friendly. Just met a likely tenant at an apartment showing? No need to wait — the whole process is just a few taps on your phone!
