Credit Checks and Background Reporting.
As part of the Service we have partnered with third-party credit and background reporting agencies. As part of this service, when a landlord requests a credit report from a prospective tenant, we will give the tenant the option to order a credit report to be shared with the requesting landlord. During this process, we may ask for personally identifiable information (including social security number) that we will share with third-party credit and background reporting agencies for the purposes of generating those reports. We do not store dates of birth or social security numbers. Any information we gather from you relative to credit and background reports will not be stored by us (except temporarily to facilitate each specific report) nor will this information be used for any other purpose than facilitating these credit and background reports. We are not responsible for the contents of any credit report, whether correct or incorrect. Credit and background reporting is provided by third-parties and may not be available at all times due to reasons beyond our control. The application fee is a non-refundable fee and includes a credit and background check. Each application is good for 30 calendar days and can be submitted to any property or landlord, as long as they accept applications. After 30 days tenants will have the option to renew for another 30-day cycle for an additional fee. Each time you submit an application for the duration of your subscription you are agreeing to the terms outlined in this agreement.
For properties and users located in the United States, rental payments can be reported to select credit bureaus for the purpose of improving a user’s credit. Reporting is sent on the 22nd of each month and reporting for the month of which is being reported. If a rental has more than one tenant, then all tenants who have a subscription and lease will have rent payments reported.
