Rental Screening Simplified

FAQs and Pricing

What is the cost for SoftScreen's Reporting?

$48.00 provides Tenants with a full package of Sharable, Re-Usable, Reports...

Credit Report with Score, Criminal and Eviction Reports as well as a Rental Application.

  • Reports are delivered to the Tenant, to the Real Estate Professional and/or to the Property Owner
  • Reports can be re-used and re-shared, over and over again, on an almost unlimited basis at absolutely no additional cost. Up to 150 times in a 30 day period.
  • Reports are a SOFT Inquiry that will not have any negative impact or lower a Tenant's credit score.
  • Compared to similar services, SoftScreen is THE BEST option for safe, affordable, tenant screening!

Why is SoftScreen a far better value than similar services?

Tenants Share and Re-Share Alike!

Other competing services typically charge a similar fee, but then only allow reports to be used one time. It's pay once, use it once, and game over! With SoftScreen it's different. Very different! Tenants can reshare reports for up to 30 days at absolutely no additional charge. We think that's a BIG deal! Applying for multiple properties, especially in a competitive rental market, is now that much easier and affordable!

Total Transparency, Effortlessly!

YOU GET YOUR OWN REPORTS! With other services, Tenants do not always receive a copy of their reports, OR they have to request a personal copy via a mind-bending, tedious, bureaucratic maze. With SoftScreen, Tenant's automatically receive copies of their own reports. Our totally effortless transparency is a huge benefit that we are proud to provide!

Agents "Copy That"!

When it comes to the disclosure of reports, the traditional distribution chain isn't actually a chain at all... Reports once pulled, are provided to only one recipient. This makes it virtually impossible for Real Estate Professionals, Agents, and Property Managers to be on the same page as the landlords they represent. With SoftScreen, we securely and discreetly distribute reports to Tenants, Real Estate Professionals, AND Property Owners, guaranteeing that information goes safely and ONLY to all those who need it for the permissible purpose at hand... Tenant Screening.

Safety First - Invaluable!

Every SoftScreen report is absent of Social Security numbers and all identifying account numbers. For Tenants, this priceless precaution protects their personal information, preventing accidental or unintended exposure. For Real Estate Professionals and Property Owners, the weighty burden of having to handle this information is now non-existent.

Is SoftScreen’s inquiry a hard or soft hit?

SoftScreen is a SOFT hit! This means it will have NO IMPACT on the consumer's credit score. None! Zero, Zip, Nada!

A record of the inquiry will appear on the consumer's credit report, allowing them to know who has been making inquiries, but it will not have any impact or lower their credit score.

An inquiry, also known as a hit, is a record of who has been inquiring on the consumer’s credit file. Consumers have a right to know who is asking about their consumer data. For this reason, inquiries are documented and disclosed on the consumer's credit report. Some inquiries, like those traditionally associated with a landlord's pulling of a Tenant's credit report, are considered a hard hit because they impact the consumer’s score in a hard or negative manner. SoftScreen is different. Ours is a soft hit that does not impact the credit score in any way!

Can SoftScreen reports be used more than once?

YES! As previously mentioned, SoftScreen reports can be shared and re-shared with multiple recipients on an almost unlimited basis for 30 days. This is limited to a maximum of 5 times per day, up to 150 shares within the first 30 days. After 30 days, sharing via SoftScreen ends. Perfect for the Tenant who has several property options. Fantastic for the Showing Agent with a tenant who may need multiple shares!

I do not want my Social Security number disclosed to anyone

OK, no problem! We won’t! We don’t!

SoftScreen’s credit reports are 100% free of Social Security numbers. They are also 100% free of any account numbers! Our reporting is discreet and safe. This benefits all concerned… including Real Estate Professionals and Property Owners who do not want the responsibility of handling documents containing another’s sensitive details.

SoftScreen does NOT keep, store or maintain your Social Security number, AT ALL! SoftScreen does not actually receive the Social Security number. With SoftScreen, Social Security numbers are being provided DIRECTLY to TransUnion® through a secure interface.

What if I don't have a Social Security number?

For Non-U.S. citizens who have applied for and received an ITIN from the I.R.S. simply use the ITIN in lieu of a Social Security number.

Who provides the consumer data contained within SoftScreen’s reporting?

All consumer data is provided by

TransUnion® Rental Screening Solutions

6430 South Fiddlers Green Circle, Suite 500

Greenwood Village, CO 80111

(800) 230-9376

What is our refund policy?

Once placed, your order is NOT refundable. This is because we cannot undo the delivery of Reports. Once Reports are provided, which is instantly upon submission of your order, it cannot be reversed. We feel it is important to share this fact with you prior to your providing payment for our service.
