Almost every business-to-consumer transaction today involves an extension of credit. More often than not, every time you need to borrow, lease or finance, you will undoubtedly be asked to produce your Social Security Number so that a credit file can be pulled to determine how much of a risk you are prior to getting an approval.

A tenant credit report contains a detailed historical record of virtually all of an applicant's financial obligations from the past seven to ten years – debts that have been reported by banks, credit card companies, mortgage lenders, utility companies, and collection agencies. So it is really difficult for an applicant to hide a questionable past – which is a good thing…at least for landlords.

Over the past 30 years, the data and algorithms used to determine risk factors and credit scoring have improved immensely to assist the decision-making process. When used correctly, there is no better way for a landlord to assess an applicant’s ability and willingness to satisfy a lease agreement than with a personal credit report – which is precisely why the entirety of this page is dedicated to making sure you understand how to use the most important tool in tenant screening before you ever have to approve an applicant.
