It is crucial to run a criminal history report to make a safe rental decision.TenantAlert.com offers instant and repository criminal searches to reveal records you should know about.

Instant Statewide & Nationwide Criminal Search – Fastest

This is the most common search because there is no time delay and no additional court costs associated with accessing criminal records. The data is as current and comprehensive as what has been posted online by court databases. Instant searches include misdemeanors, felonies, sex offender, terrorist, and federal crimes. We search all alias names associated with your applicant’s social at no additional cost.

Please note, as an FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) compliant company we will not provide any record deemed a non-conviction record older than 7-years. Also, the following states are not available as instant searches – DE, MA, SD and WY.

Repository Statewide Criminal Search – Most Accurate

Repository searches are the most accurate because court records are manually searched to find the most recent records that have not yet been reported online. In addition, the records come with more detailed information about the defendant that may not be released online. This helps improve accuracy and provide more information to you about the crime.

Since this data is retrieved from courts, the turnaround time is dependent on the jurisdiction being searched. Average turnaround time ranges from 1-4 business days. These searches range in price from $30-$50 depending on the state searched. If you would like a repository statewide criminal search added to your order call (866) 272-8400.
