Description of Services & Prices
Tenant Patrol is pleased to offer Shaker Heights landlords the following tenant screening services.
Basic Tenant Screening Package $30
Includes Credit Report or Tenant Scorecard; Nationwide Criminal Search plus Sex Offender Registry; and Statewide Eviction Report.
Items for “a La Carte” Ordering
Tenant Credit Report $18
Credit reports show a profile of the applicant’s credit history including credit score, charge-offs, collection accounts, public records, trade lines, bankruptcies, judgments, garnishments and monthly payment history. Report may also show employment and address history. Credit bureaus require your business to be inspected before reports may be released (initial registration $125). An alternative for landlords is the Tenant Scorecard.
Tenant Scorecard $18
The Tenant Scorecard is a credit risk evaluation, pre-set to industry standard parameters. Tenant Scorecards have pass/fail or “conditional” criteria for your potential tenants, that allow you to easily see whether the tenant is acceptable, based upon the preset criteria. This process uses information obtained from credit reports and the world’s largest database of tenant-landlord records, along with collection information from thousands of courthouses across the county. Tenant Scorecards are a viable alternative to standard credit reports, with more source information and user-friendly results.
Features of the Tenant Scorecard:
- A ‘Pass/Fail/Conditional’ recommendation for each report.
- Scoring criteria can be customized.
- Credit criteria can be configured based upon the ‘type’ and ‘date’ of certain credit elements, as well as income-to-rent ratio, income-to-debt ratio, bankruptcy history, payment history, collections/charge offs, and credit score.
- Accurate, automated and objective scoring recommendations reduce exposure to fair housing discrimination.
Address & Social Security Number Trace $6
Verifies the social security number provided matches the applicant’s information. Reveals other names used by the applicant in addition to addresses over the past 10 years. This information can be used to expand an applicant’s criminal history search.
Evictions Data Report $11
Tenant Patrol has access to millions of landlord-tenant eviction filings and unlawful detainers covering jurisdictions in forty-seven states. The report will alert you to reported evictions, damage claims, or rent skips. Don’t let your potential tenant’s past practice become your bad luck.
Nationwide Database Search $12
Tenant Patrol has access to a data file of over forty million offender records, including felony conviction information, state department of corrections records, and some misdemeanor information. Most state’s records are updated on a monthly basis. The file also contains over eight million alias names and nearly sixty-eight million offenses. Because this database includes criminal record information from more than thirty-eight different states, it can uncover offenses committed inside/outside of the applicant’s counties of residence. A nationwide search is not recommended as the primary criminal search due to limitations of the data. However, a nationwide search is a great screening product to complement county-level searches and broaden the scope of your criminal background checks. If derogatory information is found, Tenant Patrol must verify the accuracy of the record at the county-level court before releasing information. Additional charges may apply for this service.
Employment Verification $12*
Verification includes applicant’s position, length of employment and salary information. Reference questions can be customized to your company’s specifications. Our verification specialists have continuous follow-up procedures to expedite your verification.
Landlord History Report $12
Previous landlord or property manager is contacted to gather rental history information on your applicant. Report can include a detailed record of payment history, legal actions, complaints, apartment condition and more. Our customer service representatives have continuous follow-up procedures to expedite your report.
Criminal Records Searches: Federal or County Courthouses $14*
