Why Rentec Protect?


There are many tenant screening services out there, but most do not give you direct access to a tenant's credit report. Rentec Direct is different because we do provide you instant access to retrieve a tenant's credit report, criminal history, and eviction history instantly without any interaction from the tenant.

Here are some of the major differences between Rentec Direct membership and other services:

How quickly will I receive the background reports?
Rentec Direct
All reports in our packages get delivered directly to you within 60 seconds.
Other Services
Reports can take from 30 minutes to 3 days to be returned, depending on how quickly the tenant can verify their identity.
Is the tenant involved in the order?
Rentec Direct
Tenant interaction is not required. You order the report directly within your Rentec Direct portal and they show up for you in seconds.
Other Services
Tenant must go online and fill out a form verifying their identity and answering security questions. Once done, the tenant can authorize you to receive a copy of their report.
What do the reports cost me?
Rentec Direct
You get one free premium package each month that includes nationwide criminal, eviction and credit report with FICO score. Thereafter premium tenant screening costs only $15 per applicant.
Other Services
No free reports. The average cost of reports from other services range from $25-45 per applicant.
Is the accuracy of the reports guaranteed?
Rentec Direct
Absolutely! Rentec Direct partners with the best data sources available in the industry. If a record we provide is inaccurate we will gladly provide you a full refund.
Other Services
Other services generally do not guarantee the accuracy of their data. Even more, almost all other services do not offer a refund, even if the data is inaccurate.
Is a site inspection necessary?
Rentec Direct
To obtain direct access to credit data, a site inspection is required by the credit bureaus to ensure you are a legitimate landlord. Rentec Direct covers this fee so it is no cost to you and it typically only takes a few days to schedule anywhere in the US.

Until the inspection is completed, you can still order packages that do not include the credit report such as criminal and eviction reports.
Other Services
Yes, to obtain direct access to credit data every provider is required by law to get a site inspection. The average cost from other providers is $50 for the same site inspection.

Providers which state they do not require a site inspection are not operating legally or are offering a tenant initiated product which can take up to 3 days to return.
Who pays for the reports?
Rentec Direct
It is your option to either pay for the reports yourself, or include the cost in your application fee to the tenant thereby letting them pay for it.
Other Services
The tenant is required to pay online for the reports with their credit card before you receive a copy.
Are there other reports available?
Rentec Direct
Yes, besides the Premium Screening Package discussed here, you can also choose:
  • The Basic package that includes nationwide criminal plus address history for $7.
  • The Enhanced Package that includes nationwide criminal and nationwide eviction reports for $10.
  • We also offer each individual product available ala-carte if you need a single type of report.
Other Services
Yes, most other services also offer different packages, but not at these wholesale price points.
