How do I run a background check

3 Replies

Hello again!

I'm looking for advice concerning screening tenants. I'd like to know what kind of eviction, collection, and criminal history they have but I don't know where to look to find this information. Do you have any suggestions of where I might find it?

Greetings @Brad Bellstedt,

Check out BP's Landlord Resources. They used to sponsor MySmartMove as well but I don't see them under resources anymore. That is who I used for tenant screening. Also check your jurisdiction's 'case search' / judicial website. It will bring up any cases against the tenant, open and closed. Don't forget to thoroughly investigate previous landlord references and employment references.

I wish you the best!
