@Andrea Collatz,

The state of Mississippi does not have an instant criminal search unless you are law enforcement it is a search by hand at the county level what you are providing is a probation and parole search which is not a true criminal search.

Hi @Joe Gore and @Steve Babiak  

The article is geared more towards employment screening vs. rental screening. The compliance regulations for rental screening enable us to provide criminal records instantly with no delay in the search results – although the availability of data online varies by county and state. Our criminal data for the state of Mississippi includes: a search of Mississippi Department of Corrections data, Sex Offender data, Mississippi Parole Board data, and Felony and Misdemeanor records from Hinds County and Harrison County. I hope this helps answer your question.

My suggestion is to ensure that you are using your landlord account on and then entering the coupon code that you can find here: when you click the "Save $5" button. You can also email us at [email protected] with a quick summary and phone number and we will contact you directly to help. Thanks!

 thanks a lot. your reply is appreciated.

I'm not a pro member, but when I used the link it charged me $35. ($25+$10).

When I first logged into MySmartMove today, I had another property queued up that I loaded into the site over a year ago - it was showing $25 ($20+$5.)

Did this all just increase in price over the last year, or did I get something incorrect.
Long/short: Is $35 the price I should be paying for this service without a pro account?

@Anthony Hornbeck  - A PRO account on BP doesn't give you a discount automatically on SmartMove.  A PRO account gives you access to a coupon code that gives a discount. The same applies for our coupon code for non-pros.

That said, I believe rates did recently go up with the addition of eviction search.


@Andrea Collatz  was helpful last time I had an issue, and her instructions above should work.

I've had success with Smartmove also. I like that it's all online and they do it on their own. I don't have to spend time on it. Just send the prospective tenant an email..

I did have a hit for an out of state crime on a tenant, but it was small marijuana possession in TX, so I accepted them anyway. But good to know (at least some that I know of) out of state crimes pop up on there.

Good luck!

Thanks @Joshua Dorkin  for arranging the discount with SmartMove. I've enjoyed it so far, and gives my tenants (and sometimes myself) a little extra cash in our pockets..

@Andrea Collatz exactly where is pulling eviction history from?  An Judgement with the local court that is not reported to the credit reporting agencies (unless you put the judgement into collection with a collection company) with never show up on a person's credit report.  Please advise.
