What's included in the tenant screening reports?

The RentSpree tenant screening reports

In addition to providing a rental application, we provide a detailed screening package which includes a credit report, criminal background check, and 50 state eviction history.

Credit Report

RentSpree’s Credit Reports are provided by TransUnion SmartMove. Included in each report is a credit score, fraud indicators, loans, late payments, and more. You can access the reports from any device with an internet connection 24/7. Also included in the report is the Resident Score which is good for questions such as "What's in the credit report?" or "how recent are the late payments?"

SmartMove utilizes a soft credit inquiry, which doesn't damage the applicant's credit score whatsoever. In comparison, most in-house lenders used utilize a hard credit inquiry, which can damage credit scores by up to five points. TransUnion SmartMove has over 40 years of trusted experience and is a safe, secure way to screen tenants.

Criminal Background Check

RentSpree’s Criminal background checks are provided by TransUnion SmartMove. TransUnion accesses nationwide databases such as the National Sex Offender Registry, Most Wanted Database, as well as state court records and criminal background databases across 45 states (CO, DE, MA, SD, WY not included).


TransUnion's criminal background checks are robust. With access to over 200 million criminal records, they will give you the information necessary to make an informed decision. If your applicant has anything registered in the databases TransUnion has pulled from, you will be able to see and review it in the report.

Eviction History

Evictions are no fun for everyone involved. That's why we include a 50 state eviction history. Every eviction report reveals tenant judgment for possession and money, unlawful detainers, tenant judgments for rent, failure to pay rent, and writs and warrants of eviction.

RentSpree’s Eviction Records are provided by TransUnion SmartMove. This means you will have access to eviction records that span over all 50 states (including Washington D.C.), and include over 25+ million evictions nationwide.
