Through our TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions partnership, Intellirent agent users benefit from quick access to records from nearly 700 sources for public criminal and eviction reports, enhanced with data reported directly to TransUnion.
An agent will find any criminal and/or eviction reports that TransUnion has found and returned by opening the file to view the Application Details.
This article outlines the details of any background records found in the TransUnion reports:
- Reports Found Warning
- Criminal Report
- Eviction Report
- No Reports Found
Reports Found Warning
If there are any records, criminal or eviction, found and returned by TransUnion 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. Clicking anywhere on the file will open to the Application Details.
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

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.
