Your Danbury,CT Credit Report When Renting

February 17th, 2020 11:42 AM by Jonathan Hall

When you are in the market as a landlord to rent your property, it is very important to get a screen carefully to get a qualified tenant. As a Danbury,CT area listing agent, any tenant I would should the property to must have their credit & background checked through my office's 3rd party vendor. When they complete their application, we will only see out of the consumer privacy laws a number of their credit score, not their actual balance, account number or available rent. The program also searches for any evictions, arrests, civil judgement as well as the terrorist watch list. We always advise landlords to due to their diligence on any perspective tenant. 

I also recommend the landlord require an application in addition to the offer. There would be employment information, references and previous/current landlord information collected. Many of my landlord clients that I have worked with over the years set a minimal credit score to accept on their property, regardless of their income level. 

If the tenant is working with another agent, not my office, we require that agent to run their credit or we can run their clients background & check.
