How to Check for Errors on a Tenant Screening Report

You should carefully review your screening report for any errors. Common errors include like accounts or public records information, such as an eviction, belonging to another person with the same or similar name. Other inaccurate negative information may include criminal history that does not belong to you or does not include update information about the criminal record, such as the correct disposition. If you find errors or incomplete or outdated information in your tenant screening report, dispute the information with the company that generated the report as well as with the person or company that provided, or “furnished,” the information.
