I recommend MyScreeningReport.com - it is a great screening resource for independent rental owners. As a landlord, it doesn't cost you anything to use. Take a couple of minutes to create your account and begin inviting applicants to apply right away! The applicant verifies their identity, fills out the online application and orders their report. Once the report is complete, they (applicants) can share it with your directly through the secure MyScreeningReport.com sharing platform.
Reports are very comprehensive and include all of the necessary information to make the most informed decision. I would recommend that you set your criteria for tenant selection before you start screening, then make sure you apply the SAME criteria to each applicant in order to avoid discrimination issues. MyScreeningReport.com provides a rental criteria checklist as well as other landlord resources on their website - very helpful!
