Intellirent is partnered with TransUnion to provide agents/landlords with complete credit reports and nationwide background checks. In order to do so, an applicant must pass TransUnion's Identity Verification (IDV). This is a security step. Intellirent does not have access to these questions or answers.
An applicant may experience an error that may need further investigation by either TransUnion or Intellirent. In order quickly resolve any errors, applicants should immediately follow the steps that are presented to them on their application:
An applicant should log into their account to review the message that is displayed. Please follow the directions that are provided in the error message.

TransUnion IDV Fail
If an applicant is unable to successfully pass the TransUnion IDV questionnaire, or did not receive the IDV questionnaire, the applicant must first contact TransUnion at their earliest convenience to complete this security step. The agent/landlord will not have access to an applicant's reports until this step is completed.
A manual verification can take up to 48 hours to process and return reports. It is important this step be done as soon as possible. Please call TransUnion directly at (866) 775-0961, Option 2.
Once TransUnion has successfully verified an applicant's identity, reports will be returned, and the agent/landlord will be notified. The agent/landlord should then log into their Intellirent account to securely access the TransUnion reports.
NOTE: As an Intellirent applicant completing the TransUnion Identity Verification (IDV) online or with TransUnion's support, the credit and background check will be a soft pull; it will not affect an applicant's credit score.
When calling TransUnion, applicants may be asked a series of questions that are directly related to their social security background. For additional assistance in understanding and/or to obtaining possible questions TransUnion may ask, an applicant can first visit annualcreditreport.com. This is a trusted source where applicants can receive a free TransUnion credit report with information that may be helpful in passing TransUnion's IDV.
If an applicant was not presented with the TransUnion IDV, it may be due to a Thin File.
A Thin File is defined by TransUnion as a social security file with little to no records. In this case, an applicant may be asked to send TransUnion documentation to help in verifying their identity.
Please first contact TransUnion to identify if this you have a Thin File. Call TransUnion directly at (866) 775-0961, Option 2.
