RentReporters Partners with TransUnion SmartMove to Better Screen Tenants

Easy, Online Tenant Screening to Help Property Owners Protect Their Rental Income


PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 24, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RentReporters, the leading rental history reporting company, today announced that it is partnering with TransUnion SmartMove to better screen tenants and help landlords determine which applicants are lower risk.

TransUnion SmartMove provides property owners and realtors with dependable, in-depth tenant screening information to help landlords make the critical renting decisions about who to rent to and who to decline.  With SmartMove’s state-of-the-art online technology, property owners and realtors can easily access comprehensive information on their applicants’ backgrounds. SmartMove reports include a review of the prospective tenant’s credit, criminal and eviction history.

“Incorporating TransUnion’s SmartMove into our service offerings enables RentReporters to work with landlords to better screen their tenants,” said John Simpson, RentReporters’ CEO. “This tenant screening product will be particularly beneficial to those renters whose credit history demonstrates dependability and on-time payments.”

Credit history has been shown to be predictive of rental outcomes and can quickly identify potentially risky tenants—thus helping property owners and realtors potentially avoid missed payments or eventual eviction notices. In today’s property rental landscape, information is the most precious resource available to real estate agents and independent property owners. TransUnion SmartMove provides access to reliable data that can better protect their properties and their rental income.

About RentReporters:
RentReporters, a leading rental history reporting company, is helping to redefine the calculation of credit scores in a way that reflects modern economic life for the 100M people in the US who have rent as their single major monthly expense. Monthly rent payments are highly correlated with the ability to repay debt in a timely manner, yet they have not been one of the historically accepted data sources for calculating credit scores.

RentReporters enables renters with no or low credit scores, as well as those who already have good or excellent scores – to proactively impact these scores simply by having their monthly rent payments automatically reported to TransUnion, one of the three major credit bureaus. This, along with the company’s credit education initiatives and transparent processes and customer service, creates a clear path for consumers to access and manage appropriate credit.
