Why renters like TransUnion SmartMove renter background checks too
A TransUnion SmartMove renter background check gives renters the ability to apply for a lease while protecting their personal identifying information.
Renters who use SmartMove provide their Social Security number and bank account numbers directly to TransUnion—not an unknown landlord. TransUnion verifies the renter’s identity and provides the landlord with a leasing recommendation, credit report, eviction report and criminal history. This way, sensitive information remains safe with TransUnion.
Plus, renters’ credit scores aren’t impacted when they use SmartMove. Unlike when a landlord or lender retrieves a rental applicant’s credit report, SmartMove lets renters be the ones to initiate the request, which is considered a "soft hit" on their history and doesn’t impact their credit in any way.
