Well, you can check references, verify employment and income and then make sure to perform your due
diligence. Thoroughly, Simply and Safely, with SoftScreen.
SoftScreen is simple to use. Just create your Property Owner Account, enter your rental property address, and you're all set. That's it!
And did we mention that it's cost-free?
Yup, FREE! That's because, with SoftScreen, Tenants always provide payment for their own reports!
SoftScreen delivers a complete set of full-featured, robust rental screening reports directly to Property Owners. Have a Real Estate Listing Professional along for the ride? We even provide copies to your Agent, if you happen to be working with one. Either one, the other, or both, now have the opportunity to perform thorough due diligence based on SoftScreen’s total package of reports: credit, credit score, criminal and eviction. You even receive the Tenant's Rental Application!
SoftScreen provides you with a detailed Credit Report along with Score, which includes a Total Credit History and an easy to read Summary. You’ll see how much credit a Tenant has, how much of it is being spent, their total debt load and the number and amount of their monthly payments. It also includes the tenant’s Known Addresses, Employment, any Judgments, Bankruptcies, Collections, and all Negative and Past Due Accounts. You even get Fraud Detection!
Just incase that special someone isn’t really who you thought they were!
The National and State Criminal Background Report pulls from over 300 MILLION criminal records including National Sexual Offender, National Drug Enforcement Administration, Homeland Security investigations, Interpol, and the most wanted fugitives list from the FBI, U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, U.S. Marshall Service, U.S. Postal Service, Secret Service and the U.S. Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control.
With our National Eviction Report, we’ll include information about Court Filings, Forcible Entry/Detainer, Civil Judgements, Small Claims Judgements, Vacated Judgements, Civil Dismissals, Judgement Releases, and Possession Judgements.
(Eviction data for properties located within NY State is unavailable as per New York's "Housing Stability and Tenant Protection act of 2019")
Don't have the Tenant's email address? Not a problem... potential Tenants can find your rental simply by searching for its address!
If you are, you can also invite your Realtor® to receive copies of a prospective Tenant's Reports along with you.
Or, your Agent can enter the property, and invite YOU to receive the Reports!
Viewing credit, criminal and eviction reports is easy to do. Just log in to your SoftScreen dashboard and click on your "View available reports" button. Reports for every Tenant who has applied for every one of your rental property listings will be visible. Everything in one organized place.
What happens if a Tenant isn't suitable based on something in their consumer reports? The FCRA requires a letter of adverse action to be sent to the applicant. We've got this! With a simple click of the mouse, SoftScreen handles this for you! We will notify the Tenant with the appropriate letter that meets your obligation under the FCRA. Things just got that much easier!
