TurboTenant strives to provide our customers with quality services when it comes to completing their tenant screening reports. However, it is important to note that we have no control over the information that is contained in the report since it is generated by the credit bureau, TransUnion.

Identity Theft & Fraud on Consumer Reports

TurboTenant does not generate consumer reports, but rather only forwards the reports that are generated by TransUnion, a consumer reporting agency. TurboTenant is not required to remove accurate derogatory information from a consumer file. Any changes or updates to your screening report would have to be made by TransUnion.

Requesting Your File or Disputing a Report

In accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, if you would like to request a copy of your file (at no cost to you) or have a question on the completeness or accuracy of the information used to create the consumer report, or if you would like to dispute any inaccuracies or add a consumer statement, please contact the consumer reporting agency listed below.

Inaccurate Background Check Results

Our background screening services are also provided by TransUnion. They use advanced logic to match criminal records with prospective tenants, including: name, date of birth, past addresses, aliases, and other factors. It is possible that a positive criminal record match may be a record that is actually from a different person.

Landlords are encouraged to contact the court or law enforcement agency of record directly should they seek additional information, confirm accuracy, or to better understand the disposition of a criminal record associated with a screening report.

If an applicant believes that the criminal record associated with their screening report is inaccurate, they should contact:
