FAQ

Answer

A Tenant Score is a snapshot of your Leasing worthiness represented as a number. Landlords use this number to help them determine the risk in leasing to you. It is an objective, non-biased tool used by landowners to provide you with a faster, fairer, and more consistent response.

Answer

The Tenant Score is similar to a traditional credit score. It uses the same numbering system, with roughly the same meaning as a traditional score. The range of possible scores extends from 300 to 850, although the key portion of that scale lies between 600 and 750. Any score over 750 will be considered extremely reliable by any leasing institution that uses Rent Verify's Tenant Score services. Most scores fall between 600 and 750. The higher the score, the more likely you are to be approved for a lease, also higher scores could even lead to receiving more favorable leasing options.

Answer

There are three primary factors that determines a Tenant Score:

  • Current Rental Payment History (maintaining clean rental history)
    "What is your track record?” "Any Late Payments".
  • Length of rental payment history established (past rental payment history)
    "How established is your rental history?"
  • Past Rental History (Clean Public Record).
"Any recent Judgements or Convictions"

Answer

The following information does not influence the Tenant Score:

  • Race, color, religion, national origin, sex, and marital status
  • Employment information.
  • Place of residence.
  • Amount of rent being paid.
  • Current credit standing
