Instantly view a TransUnion® credit report with FICO score on any applicant. Our powerful credit reporting engine gives you a choice: TransUnion® (Instant) or Experian® (Invite). You decide.

Intelligent FICO Score Coloring

At-a-glance FICO score color coding (Green, Yellow, or Red) helps you determine where an applicant’s FICO score falls as compared to the national average. The average American’s FICO score is 682. If an applicant meets or exceeds this number, we color code it as green. Yellow is shown for 550 to 681.

Full TransUnion® Credit Report With Summary

Drill-down into the specifics of each applicant’s credit report. View names, addresses, employers, installment accounts, revolving accounts, and inquiries. All of this information helps you determine an applicant’s ability to pay rent on-time every month. A rule of thumb for many property managers is income 3x the monthly rent amount.

No Monthly Minimums, No Contracts

VerticalRent provides both Experian® (invite-only) and TransUnion® (instant) full credit reports due to the wide range of customers using our platform. Individual investors typically opt for the invite method while Property Management or Brokerage Firms with large volume requirements choose Instant/TransUnion®.

Stress Free Onsite Inspection

Processing instant TransUnion® full credit reports with a FICO score does require proof of an onsite inspection. VerticalRent has teamed up with TrendSource to make this experience stress free and quick. A certified inspector will visit your physical office to perform the onsite inspection. Within days, you are pulling credit on applicants.

Paper or plastic? Your applicants can pay for their credit report and share it with you, or you can take a paper rental application from an applicant and run credit yourself. Either way, you have the financial data necessary to make a smart leasing decision.

Add Internal Notes to All Reports

You have the ability to add internal notes as you review an applicant’s credit, criminal, or eviction report. Your notes are securely threaded and time stamped to the record within VerticalRent for you to review at a later point. A complete audit trail is automatically generated on every consumer report viewed.

Tags are one of VerticalRent’s most flexible features. They allow you to give applicants additional context or to group individuals for easy viewing. Brokerage and Property Management firms with high volume requirements can easily stay organized.

Flexible Tagging of Applicants

Combined with VerticalRent’s filtering capabilities, the free-form nature of tags means that you can use them how you want. Some of our customers use tags to associate an applicant with a property (“Main St.” or “Penn Ave”). Others use them to categorize stages in the lease decision process (“Waiting on Employment Verification”). The possibilities are endless.

Quick Search Capability

Finding the perfect tenant takes time. As applications roll-in for the properties you manage, the flexible tagging capabilities of VerticalRent keep you organized. But, there is always that random call from an outstanding applicant that comes into the office. Having the ability to quickly search by first name, last name, or by e-mail address is a time saver!

Sort or Filter By

Sorting and filtering the applicant and instant checks list makes life easy for our property managers. You can quickly sort by latest activity, status, or creation date. Even more powerful is your ability to filter by the flexible tags you’ve created. Clearing filters is also a snap, so is bouncing between different views.

Universal Tokens

A VerticalRent token is a voucher that can be exchanged for credit, criminal, or eviction reports. We offer up a 40% discount ($10/report) for our Ultimate Edition subscribers. We also offer a 100% satisfaction risk-free guarantee to our Ultimate Edition subscribers.
