Agents benefit from quick access to records from nearly 700 sources for public criminal and eviction reports and are enhanced with data reported directly to TransUnion.
An agent will find any criminal and/or eviction reports that TransUnion has found and returned in the Renter Resume.
This article outlines the details of any background records found in the TransUnion reports:
Reports Found Warning
If there are any reports, criminal or eviction, found and returned in the applicant's background check, an agent will see a warning symbol (red exclamation point) next to the credit score.
The warning symbol is an indicator of a Criminal/Eviction record. By clicking on the score and/or warning symbol, you will navigate to the top of the TransUnion reports.
Intellirent does not control or alter the data returned by TransUnion, however we try to display the data to you in an easy to read format.
Using advanced filters and industry best practices, TransUnion uses public records to search:
- 44 state criminal background checks*
- Most Wanted Databases
- National Sex Offender Public Registry
Please note, per our partnership with TransUnion:
*The Criminal Report is subject to federal, state and local laws which may limit or restrict TransUnion Rental Services' (TURSS) ability to return some records. Instant criminal results are not available for the city of Seattle, WA, Delaware, Washington D.C., Hawaii, Kentucky, Massachusetts, South Dakota, and Wyoming.
COCourts is not included within the national instant search, however, the Denver court dock is included within the search along with Most Wanted and the Sex Offender registry search.
An agent can choose not to receive criminal reports by toggling Criminal Reports OFF from Settings: Application Criteria.
TransUnion has a database of over 27 million eviction records. Eviction check reports will include:
- Tenant judgment for possession and money
- Unlawful detainers
- Tenant judgments for rent
- Failure to pay rent
- Writs and warrants of eviction
Using TransUnion's accurate match-back logic, the bureau can more accurately match results to applicants when running background checks. Their robust credit, personal, and address history database to help determine who is who. That means you receive more accurate results and less false positives.
No Report Found
If no reports are found in TransUnion's search, the reports section in the Renter Resume will say, No Reports Found.
