Rentec Protect

Introducing an exclusive tenant screening club to protect your rental properties and investments.

Rentec Direct has long been the leader in tenant screening solutions for landlords and property managers by providing the best credit reports, criminal background checks, and eviction history searches on rental applicants.  Landlords and property managers use these reports to determine if a renter is qualified to rent a property and will be a responsible tenant. In 2017 alone, more than 38,000 premium tenant screening packages were ordered from Rentec Direct.

To better serve the rental industry, Rentec Direct is proud to introduce a new tenant screening service to landlords and property managers called Rentec Protect.

Rentec Protect – Tenant Screening for Property Managers and Landlords

Rentec Protect is an exclusive tenant screening club that offers members the best options for protecting their investment and rental properties. Screening your rental applicants with the right tenant screening package is the best way to make an informed decision about approving your next renters. Approving an unqualified renter puts you at risk for non-payment of rent, property damage, lease violations, and eviction, all of which are extremely stressful, time-consuming, and expensive for a manager or landlord and their rental business.

How does the club work?

Landlords and property managers join the Rentec Protect tenant screening club to get access to the premium tenant screening report packages.

The premium tenant screening package available to Rentec Protect members offer the best screening reports to evaluate a rental applicant’s credit, criminal, and eviction history.

Membership is only $15 a month and includes a free premium screening package and a 50% discount on all additional premium tenant screening packages.

The Rentec Protect Premium Tenant Screening Package includes:

  • Nationwide Criminal Search shows you all criminal convictions from the most comprehensive and accurate nationwide database.*
  • Transunion Credit Report with FICO® score to verify how well the tenants handle their credit, pay their bills, and if they have any collections history.
  • Nationwide Eviction Search to see if the tenant has had any prior evictions.
  • Prior Address Search shows the complete address history of the tenant.
  • SSN Verification to verify the validity of the SSN provided.

Rentec Protect members receive a free premium screening package each month, and enjoy wholesale pricing on all additional screening packages ordered at only $15 each.

Who pays for tenant screening packages, me or my rental applicant?

As a Rentec Protect member you will pay for an annual membership at $15/month ($180/year). The membership fee gives you one free premium tenant screening package each month, a complimentary site inspection as required by the credit bureaus for access to credit reports ($50 savings), and discounts on all tenant screening report packages.

When you order a tenant screening report, the cost is $15 for the premium package. This will be billed to you, however, a lot of landlords and property managers pay for this with a rental application fee collected from the tenant. So while there is a cost associated with ordering tenant screening reports, the actual cost to you is deferred to the rental applicant.

The right tenant screening package means less non-payment of rent, less property damage, less lease violations, and less evictions.  Join the Club : Rentec Protect
