How It Works

BCR Tenant Screening revolutionizes tenant screening by putting the applicant in control. The reports are ordered and paid for by the applicant. This results in a 'soft' inquiry that doesn't hurt the applicant’s credit score. Then, applicants share their reports with you.

All parties have their identities verified through the credit bureau during the initial account creation. This allows BCR Tenant Screening to deliver reports without social security or account numbers, protecting applicants and landlords.

What You Get

Your applicant will receive the following reports and share them with you at no cost to you:

  • Consumer credit report
  • Criminal background check
  • Eviction history report

Commercial applicants will also receive and share a BCR Advantage Pro report on their business. Advantage Pro is the most comprehensive multi-bureau business credit report available, with information from Experian, Dun & Bradstreet, and Equifax.
