Credit report: go beyond the credit score

Soft Credit Inquiry—It doesn't damage applicants' credit scores

Most tenant verification 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. For more information on hard vs. soft credit inquiries, click here.

User Friendly—So easy anyone can read it

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.

24/7 Access

You can access the reports whenever and wherever you want! Reports are available 24/7 from your dashboard and are mobile optimized to allow viewing on the go.
