Last week I filed an eviction at JP court. Today I get a letter from National Tenant Network for me to fill out for their database. They obviously got the info directly from court records because It has my information and the tenants info. Is this company legit? I'm happy to fill it out if it's legit and useful to other landlords.
Yes, it's a legit company, and I used to use them a lot for tenant screening. I believe they have a franchise model where anyone can buy into the business and start a new office location.
I am also familiar with those postcards - I often got them whenever I evicted as well. It is partly to advertise that they could have saved you an eviction because they had a record in their database that would have been a red flag and you perhaps could have avoided renting to them to begin with.
After a while, I noticed I could get most of the info from public records and have since stopped paying for their screening services.
Thank you for the info! I appreciate it.
They have been around for over 30 years. In our area same office and same people with no turn over. I suggest you call them in person making sure it is an imitation.
