We ran across an Internet tool that may be helpful if you are a landlord who handles your own credit checking for potential renters? MySmartMove.com is an Internet tool you will likely want to keep on file.
This website tool will do a credit and criminal check on your renters for about $30. As a landlord you register for free. When you have a potential renter you enter their email address on the site. The website then sends a link to the renter and they enter their information and pay for the credit check. You, the landlord, then receives a credit and criminal search report from TransUnion.
