Michigan tenant screening is now available with a complete background check including criminal reports, evictions records, and more. The information supplied by the different reporting sources changes from place to place. The list below provides a current overview of the sources of, and information supplied for, each kind of report.
Consumer Credit information comes from the three major national credit reporting bureaus: Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax. All information is nationwide, and is available when searched from any state.
Business Credit information comes from a national credit reporting bureau, and is available regardless of where the business is located.
Some individual counties do not report some criminal data information to larger agencies so it may not be included in an E-Renter background report. For specific counties, and the type of information included, please see the list below under National Criminal Data Reports. To supplement this available information, a real-time search of county records by a person located in that county is available in most counties. There is an additional fee for this search.
Although information is gathered from nationwide, multi-jurisdictional sources, the kind of information reported by different agencies varies. See below the general type of information included and reporting agencies in this state. This list is kept current as we are informed of changes, but is subject to change at any time.
