TransUnion National Eviction Related Proceedings Report

The National Eviction Related Proceedings Report is subject to federal, state, and local laws that may limit or restrict TransUnion's ability to return some records. Certain jurisdictions may limit what eviction related records are eligible for return. Eviction related records are not available for New York, Connecticut, and Miami-Dade County.

Request Limitations

Certain jurisdictions require conditional acceptance or acceptance before receiving background check information.   For these locations, some reports are not available to request from an applicant as RentSpree does not offer two-step screening.  This includes Cook County, Illinois; Miami-Dade County, Florida; Detroit, Michigan; Washington D.C.; Montgomery County, Maryland and New Jersey.
