Updates to Evictions Reporting and Tenant Screening Pricing
Our team of highly skilled software engineers has worked hard over the past few months upgrading our integration with TransUnion. This upgraded integration has three benefits for our landlords: improved evictions reporting, unbundled pricing, and control over who pays for the screening reports.
For landlords who have used Rentalutions to screen tenants, the change means that we are now giving you more information and more control for the same low price.
These updates are designed to help the 30,000+ landlords who use our platform to be efficient and profitable. If you’re not already using Rentalutions, get started for free now.
Improved Evictions Reporting
One of the best ways to deal with problems is to avoid them before they occur. As a landlord, the most important thing you can do is avoid problem tenants. These tenants will cause hours of headaches and cost you thousands of dollars.
Fortunately, if you follow a thorough tenant screening process, you’ll be able to identify problem tenants before signing a lease.
One of the best ways to tell if a tenant will cause problems is knowing if he or she has ever been evicted from another rental property.
An eviction oftentimes means that the tenant caused damage to a rental or refused to pay rent. As a landlord, renting to these people is not worth the risk.
To help you avoid renting to tenants with prior evictions, we are now providing you with easy access to Nationwide Tenant Eviction Checks.
Our eviction reports pull from millions of records of eviction data from across the United States. You now have all the information you need to make an educated, informed decision.
Tenants can authorize you to view their eviction reports in just a few clicks. As soon as they complete the authorization, the reports will be available instantly inside your Rentalutions landlord account.
Knowledge is power. Be a powerful, informed landlord.
Updated, Unbundled Pricing
One of the questions that we frequently receive from landlords is whether they can purchase only the credit report or only the criminal background report. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been possible in the past. Things are different now.
We are excited to introduce a la carte pricing for our credit reports, nationwide criminal background reports, and new nationwide eviction reports.
In the past, there was only one option – to purchase the credit reports and criminal background checks together for $45.
We are now giving you the option to purchase the credit report for $25, the criminal background report for $20, and the eviction report for $15. If you want all three reports, there’s a 25% discount, for a total cost of $45.
This new pricing provides more flexibility to you, our amazing landlords.
Despite offering unbundled pricing, we still encourage you to thoroughly screen all prospective tenants by requiring each person to authorize all three reports.
It’s still 100% free to request online rental applications from prospective tenants.

Control Over Who Pays
Although I require all prospective tenants to pay the tenant screening fees (I use the small fee as a way to screen tenants and see who’s serious), I understand that some landlords prefer to cover the costs themselves.
Based on the significant number of landlords asking for the ability to pay for the reports themselves, our team built this functionality.
Landlords who use Rentalutions to screen prospective tenants now have the ability to choose whether to pay for the reports, or to require tenants to pay for these fees.
More than 30,000 landlords use Rentalutions to manage properties in 8,000 zip codes across the United States. If you haven’t given our platform a try, you can get started here for free.
