Tenant screeners should rely on eviction records to improve the thoroughness of their services. While credit checks and criminal background checks are normal in the resident screening workflow, evictions are unlikely to show up in either step. Criminal background checks would only show an eviction if there was a criminal charge associated with the eviction. This means tenant screeners looking to retrieve eviction records need a supplemental source for valuable pointer data.
AssuredTenant™ provides access to a nationwide pointer database of civil eviction records. Our solution provides a comprehensive look at historical residential information, including the following record types:
The TotalVerify™ data hub from Equifax helps tenant screening companies access eviction data so that the right tenants can be vetted, approved, and moved in quicker.
AssuredTenant leverages our industry-leading address history file, FACT, to improve confidence in returned pointer records. Civil records rarely contain identifying information beyond the tenant’s name. But names alone are inadequate in providing eviction records without running the risk of returning large amounts of unwanted data. AssuredTenant reduces the return of unwanted data by comparing the name and address on the eviction record to our billions-large database of residential address history.
