Realtor Background Check

Reliable Background Screening’s resident and tenant screening solutions are specifically designed for property, apartments, and multi-family supervisors, property managers, and property owners and landlords who desire accurate resident screening background check reports on potential residents and tenants. Protect your property and avoid the problems associated with "problem" residents or tenants. With our secure web-based resident and tenant screening solutions, you’ll receive FCRA-compliant resident or tenant screening for every applicant to ensure you have the most reliable residents and tenants. Faxed-based resident and tenant screening options are also available.

Are your potential residents and tenants being totally forthcoming with you? Resident screening solutions that properly evaluate prospective residents or tenants are necessary to protect your property investment.

The resident screening background check technology we use searches nationwide resident screening databases to quickly deliver the most accurate information about your potential resident. The resident screening solutions Reliable Background Screening offers will help shield your property from the perils of an uncertain world while also helping maintain compliance with FCRA regulations (Fair Credit Reporting Act):

  • CORE® Criminal Search (Multistate Instant National Criminal Check and 50-State Sex Offender Check) 
  • Credit Report (Canadian Credit Reports are also available)
  • Social Search (to help validate your applicant’s identity, social security number, and display current and previous applicant names and addresses)
  • National Instant Eviction Search (this product is essential since all three credit bureaus stopped reporting eviction judgments and many other public records ever since July 1, 2017)
  • Instant Applicant Decision (customizable to each property's applicant qualifying criteria)
  • Verification Services (Employment and Rental History)


For over 25 years, Reliable Background Screening has helped Real Estate Agents all across the nation further enhance the services that these agents provide to their real estate clients. Whether you are a realtor who often handles rentals, or you are an agent who rarely does, Reliable can provide the tenant screening services that can make you more valuable to your own clients.

With no monthly minimum billing requirements and no annual service charges, once your tenant screening account is set up, you only pay for the tenant screening reports that you process.

Plus, since the norm in tenant screening is to have the rental applicant pay a non-refundable application fee, our tenant screening services should be of no out-of-pocket expense to you... the realtor. In fact, most of our realtor clients earn additional income by offering our tenant screening services, because their Rental Application Fee is more than our tenant screening charges.



Your tenant screening account remains yours, even if you switch real estate brokerage agencies

Sometimes circumstances arise that require you to change your real estate brokerage affiliation. If that should happen - rest assured - your tenant screening account stays with you. Combine the above with the ease of our 24/7 secure Web Portal for accessing and storing your tenant screening reports, and it becomes apparent why more and more realtors are choosing Reliable Background Screening for their tenant screening needs.



Our customizable service allows you to offer the benefits of tenant screening to all your agents, even to those who only need it occasionally

We have the ability to set up some or all your agents with unique user names and log-ins under your main account on our system, so they may conduct searches independently. Our billing for these services can be customized for you as well: You may choose from one invoice broken down by agent, or you may elect to have each agent’s orders billed on separate invoices. Having a broker ‘owned’ master tenant screening account for all of your agents is a benefit you can offer, that should also help with agent retention.
