Hi,
I have rental properties in California as well as in Schaumburg. Here is the web site that I use to perform Credit and back ground checks: https://www.tenantverification.com. It's pretty straight forward and only cost $34 to do a Credit, Criminal, and Evection background check.
Although I require these checks from all rental prospects I do call the prior landlords and confirm employment and pay range with the prospects employer.(Most companies will not tell you over the phone what the employee makes but will confirm a pay range..i.e $50-60k a year).

Good luck!

Most companies who do tenant screening will do credit checks.https://www.tenantverification.com. is good. Another good company to use is http://www.atenantscreen.com/. They are BBB certified, fast and easy.
They will run the possible tenant's through the check. They also do criminal record checks and so on.
