I have recently dealt with a newer company called TenantCheck, a credit inquiry company that exists for Landlord-Tenant screening. It is not as regimented as belonging to one of the national credit reporting agencies, and doesn't provide a complex credit report with tradelines, but it does look like a good service for a landlord with one or more rental units. I asked Dawn at the company for some information regarding their services, and she provided me this:
TenantCheck is a great asset to homeowners who have rental properties and need to find suitable tenants or are renewing a lease with existing tenants. We can provide service to homeowners all across Canada and also have the ability to pull US consumer files if you have someone who has just relocated from the United States. We currently offer a recommendation to you based on a full credit check and FICO score. Want to learn more? Email us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 289-237-9201.
Our company is based on the belief that our customers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our team is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals. TenantCheck handles both fax based clients and online clients (via email) with average turn around time of 4 hours. We would welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the industry.
