Criminal Background Checks and Tenant Screening Solutions
According to SatisFacts Research, tenant turnover costs property managers an average of $4,305 per move-out. Add a challenging economy, a diminishing prospect pool and rising renter concessions and it can be difficult to offset the cost of vacancies-not to mention bad debts, skips and evictions.
Now more than ever, large property management companies and independent landlords alike require advanced tenant screening solutions to improve risk assurance, retention and profitability by more quickly identifying the right kind of tenant.
Protect Your Property from Problem Renters
To help you more effectively evaluate potential and ongoing residents, increase revenue and reduce cost and risk, LexisNexis® offers a variety of criminal background check, renter screening and debt collection tools through our Resident Screening solution:

Find Prior Evictions, Monitor Residents, Locate Debtors
Combine our criminal background check and screening solutions with additional services for greater operational efficiencies and more informed decision-making:
- Identity Verification
Our proprietary SSN verification service matches input information against millions of consumer credit files and returns any other names and addresses associated with the identifying information used to request the report.
- Eviction Histories
Our National Eviction file is updated daily with current information that includes 28 million eviction records pulled from more than 1,800 nationwide counties and parishes. Reporting initial filings, judgments and possessions, it helps you identify unqualified applicants not found through traditional credit searches.
- Skipped Resident History
Offered free to LexisNexis® Resident Screening customers, this proprietary database allows property managers and owners from more than 1.5 million units nationwide to share information about tenants who allegedly have violated leases, continuously pay late, skip out on amounts owed or falsify information.
- Monthly Resident Monitoring
This automatic, continuous monitoring service uses the same powerful criminal, sex offender and eviction data used during initial applicant screening to monitor residents throughout the life of the lease. You'll identify potential non-renewals earlier, improve safety for your apartment community and reduce renewal screening costs.
