Requirements will vary depending upon several factors including your type of business as well as how and where your rental business records are stored. The following explanations will help you select the appropriate options to proceed.

Business Type : Owners of rental property are considered by law to be a business . . . whether you own one unit or hundreds of properties. As a consumer reporting agency, we are restricted to providing our products only to clients with a legitimate business purpose. If you are incorporated, select option A. Otherwise, select option B.

Office Type : While it's possible to operate a rental business from almost anywhere, you will need to select your business "office type" (where your rental business records are kept). This applies to both paper and digital document storage. If you operate from a commercial location, select 1. Otherwise, select 2.

What is Physical Separation? : A room or closet with a door (preferably lockable) that contains nothing other than what appears to be office related (desks, computers, file cabinets, book cases, shredders, etc.). The contents of this room should not require access by anyone other than the approved end user (no guest beds, mechanicals, circuit boxes, water mains, etc.).

Credentialing Documents : By definition, credentialing is the process used to obtain, verify, assess, and validate previous experience or qualifications. In this circumstance, we need to verify that you (and your business) are who you claim to be and have a legitimate business purpose for obtaining consumer reports.

Send the New Client Application, the Client Service Contract(s) and all additional required certification documents back to us via mail, fax or secure upload. We ask that you not use email to transmit these documents as this is not a secure method of transfer. It is not necessary to return these forms until you have an application you'd like processed, so you may send all of the documents together.

About Us
Established in 1989, Tenant Check is a local, family owned business specializing in Property Rental and Pre Employment applicant screening.

Tenant Check employs a combination of targeted data sources to return the most complete and verifiable intelligence about YOUR applicant. Many “instant” screening services return a “false positive” and cannot provide the true and accurate results obtained by the focused and thorough methods utilized by Tenant Check.

We are very proud of our record and our ability to provide comprehensive, detailed and objective information while protecting the rights of applicants and landlords. We would be equally proud to serve you as one of our valued clients. Put our research experience to work for you!
