Q. Why should I screen my potential tenants/guests?

A. Tenant screening gives landlord and property owners a comprehensive overview of your applicants’ criminal and financial history. This enables you to make informed leasing/renting decisions, reducing the risk of property damage, unpaid rent, and evictions.

Q. What is included in a tenant background check or guest verification?
A. The services requested by our property management clients and property owners vary. Though no package meets the need of every single client, we recommend at least an SSN Trace, a criminal history search, a sex offender search, Verified Watch List, and ASAP ID. For additional due diligence, we recommend a credit check and employment verification.
Q. Can I run a tenant background check on an applicant who is from another country?
A. Yes. InfoMart has screening experts in 200+ countries and territories across the globe. No matter where your potential tenants previously lived, you will always be able to get the info you need with InfoMart.
Q. How do I maintain compliance with all federal, state, and local laws when running a tenant background check?
A. InfoMart’s rules-based system has compliance filters built in, ensuring property managers Get the Whole Storyon their applicants without seeing non-compliant results. Our tenant background checks are compliant with all relevant regulations, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
Q. How long does a tenant background check take?
A. Turnaround times vary depending on the service and jurisdictions requested, but InfoMart maintains an average turnaround time under 1.5 days.
Q. I’m not a property management company. I only own a few properties. Can I run a tenant background check?
A. Absolutely! All of InfoMart’s tenant screening solutions are built to meet your specific needs. We work with clients of varying sizes, from just a few renters to thousands of units across the country.
Q. What constitutes “adverse action” for tenant screening?

A. “Adverse action” means any tenancy decision that negatively impacts your potential renter. You are required to send an adverse action letter to a tenant if you’ve decided to deny an applicant based on a tenant screening report or if you’ve decided to offer them conditional, “high-risk” tenancy based on a tenant screening report (such as requiring an additional deposit).
