A property address is required to screen applicants, per TransUnion. While you may not have a specific property in mind, or you may be helping a fellow agent with their listing, we do require a property address be entered in order to collect tenant screening reports. Since we are not a listing site, this information is only shared with the potential tenant so they know the request came from you. It also allows us to connect your account with the potential tenant's account so that you receive their rental application and/or tenant screening reports directly.
It is possible to only request the rental application. When you arrive at the step where you could select tenant screening reports, make sure the only box checked is the Online Rental Application.
This is a type of credit score that is specifically designed for tenant screening services from TransUnion. Here are some reasons that a TransUnion SmartMove ResidentScore is the way to go:
The tenant screening report expires after 30 days after which we no longer have access to it. This is a regulation from TransUnion to protect the applicant's data. For this reason, we allow you to print or save tenant screening reports as a PDF within those 30 days.

Go beyond the credit score.
Most tenant screening applications use a hard credit inquiry to check credit score. While this is a valid way of screening prospective tenants, it harms their credit score. TransUnion SmartMove uses a soft credit inquiry, which has no effect on a user’s score. View more information on hard vs. soft credit inquiries.
You can easily locate the applicant’s important information on TransUnion’s report. Credit score factors, record counts, and derogatory items give you background information beyond the credit score itself.
You can access your tenant screening reports whenever and wherever you want! Reports are available 24/7 from your dashboard and are mobile optimized to allow viewing on the go.
