CoreLogic offers small landlords’ access to a credit report, which includes the applicant’s:
A credit score is available for an additional fee. The score is typically used by lenders, rather than landlords, to determine credit risk. The score is based on the information that the credit bureau has on file. When you purchase a score or credit report, you are only getting a snapshot of the applicant’s overall financial standing at the time of your purchase. The credit report may not include all the information relevant to the applicant’s lease performance.
To understand how the applicant’s overall financial standing impacts their ability and willingness to complete the terms of a lease, we recommend obtaining a Tenant Score. This score uses data from the credit report as well as other relevant information about the applicant, like eviction history, to determine the applicant’s likelihood of completing a lease. In addition to these benefits, landlords can receive instant-on access to our Tenant Score online, without a physical inspection.
The Credit Report and/or score requires a physical inspection of your business premises. We are required to perform this inspection, at a cost of approximately $90, in order to provide access to this highly confidential consumer data. If you have questions about the physical inspection process, please visit our frequently asked tenant screening questions.
