Credit Report
  • CREDIT SCREENING by Experian

    Send A Request – I will need your NAME and EMAIL address to start a tenant/credit check - A request is sent via email to you to complete questionnaire from Experian.

    Common Questions

    What happens once I send a request?

    The Experian Connect system will notify your prospective tenant at the email address that you provide. Your account and their account will become "linked" once they have granted you access to their credit profile. If needed, they may first have to register for an Experian Connect account and purchase a credit report.

    Does my viewing of a prospective tenant's credit report lower their credit score?

    No, it will not affect their credit score. This type of credit request is considered a "soft inquiry" since you are obtaining consent from the consumer to receive their credit report. Review your obligations under the FCRA.

    How long am I able to view a prospective tenant's credit report?

    A credit report is generally available to view for 30 days from the date of purchase. Scenarios to consider:

    The prospective tenant grants you access to their credit report 10 days after they initially purchased it. This leaves you only 20 days to review their credit. Prospective tenant can revoke access at any time.
