Employment Verification
The employment verification process takes the information about one or more employers as provided on a subject’s application or resume and verifies the accuracy by directly contacting those employers.
National Eviction Records
A rental background check is an additional screening tool that allows landlords to see various aspects of a tenant applicant’s past behavior. This data helps to paint a picture of how responsible a tenant might be.

This tool locates potential criminal records with its nationwide scope. This Search draws from over 600 million records from thousands of jurisdictions, including counties, department of corrections (DOC), administrative office of courts (AOC), from all 50 states.

You should know
background check
What information is revealed to an employer when they conduct a background check?

Criminal history: If your pre-employment background check is going to reveal one piece of information about you, it’s your criminal record. Criminal history checks are the cornerstone of most job-related background checks, simply because employers want to know if their prospective hire has any skeletons in their closet. Usually, employers are looking for big crimes–violent offenses, sex crimes, fraud or embezzlement, other felony convictions–and background checks don’t include arrest reports.

However, even if you’ve only been convicted of a minor crime–petty theft or misdemeanor drug possession, for instance–it’s a good idea to disclose it on your application if there’s a question about criminal history. Employers will generally look more kindly on applicants with criminal histories if those applicants are honest and forthright about their past mistakes.

3 Reasons Landlords Must Require Tenant Background Checks

safe community
Keep Neighbors, Community, and Yourself Safe

When you’re considering who to rent to, you should think of it as who you are allowing in your building and your community. It is your responsibility to your community to choose tenants who don’t put anyone at risk of harm.

Protect Yourself From Liability

By requiring a tenant background check, you are setting yourself up to know as much valuable information as possible. For example, you might learn that your prospective tenant has a history of shoplifting. With this knowledge, you can reject this applicant because you have a reasonable concern that he or she could steal from other tenants in the building

Discourage Tenants Who are Trying to Hide Something

Simply requiring a tenant background check sends a clear message to your applicants. It discourages people from applying who want to hide something.

There are some red flags that you can notice before you ask your tenant to authorize a background check:

If an applicant stops replying to you after you make the requirement known
If an applicant refuses to authorize the background check

How to Screen Potential Tenants

  1. Request an Application
  2. Run a Credit Check
  3. Run a Background Check
  4. Contact the Previous Landlords
  5. Contact the Tenant’s Employer
  6. Interview the Tenant

Final Word:

As a landlord, you have to screen every potential tenant; there’s just too much at risk if you don’t. After all, you definitely don’t want to end up having to go through the process of evicting a tenant. But that doesn’t mean you need to become a private detective every time someone turns in a new application either. Use your instincts and try to get a feel for the tenant, and then back those instincts up with some hard facts from the tenant’s credit report and background information. Be careful not to overstep your boundaries, which can put you at risk for breaking privacy laws in the Landlord and Tenant Act.
