Help me find out if these nice-seeming tenants are actually defaulting murderers.

LandlordFilter: Who's got credit and criminal background checking service recommendations?
posted by ignignokt to Work & Money (6 answers total) 4 users marked this as a favorite
So, I have some applicants to rent my place out, and now I need to check out their viability as tenants. I can check on their work and rental histories by calling companies and landlords myself, but I need to pay someone to do credit and criminal background checks. Googling turns up a lot (including this
, which appears both tempting and suspicious), so I'd prefer to go with something MeFites have already used without getting burned. Can anyone recommend a service?
In regard to credit, I'm more interested in defaults and bankruptcy than I am in a credit score number.
