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
IF you are working with a Realtor®, they will probably enter the rental property in SoftScreen.
It's great if they do! And then they will most likely invite you to join the report distribution chain.
When receiving an invitation, simply click the link in the email. This will give you an opportunity to create your SoftScreen Property Owner account.
If you already have an account, great! You can simply log in.
Once logged in, click the "View invitations" button to accept their invitation.
Now, whenever reports are provided by a Tenant, both you AND your Agent will be able to view them. Pretty Cool!
So what happens if your rental property address is not yet listed within SoftScreen, and you have agreed to let a Showing Agent bring you a Tenant? No problem here, just an awesome solution...
SHOWING AGENTS CANNOT CREATE SOMEONE ELSE'S LISTING in SoftScreen. That would be too easy, right? This is because a Tenant's Agent does not legally represent the property or the Property Owner.
To help make things easier, the Showing Agent can invite YOU to create your listing within SoftScreen.
IF you receive an invitation from a Showing Agent Simply accept the invitation by clicking on the link in the email. SoftScreen will then guide you through the process.
FYI... If the rental property has already been listed within SoftScreen then the above is not needed.
The Tenant is good to go.
They simply locate the property by its address to share their reports with YOU. Simple, Safe and Efficient!
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!
