Denied and Apartment or Housing due AmerUSA Background Check Errors?

Sadly, tenant screening errors are common. This is one of the most frustrating situations to be in. You need a place to live but if your background check or credit report is inaccurate it can make it impossible. Or it can cause landlords to make changes to the terms of your lease or increase your deposit.

Dispute AmerUSA Tenant Screening Report

When inaccurate information is contained in your AmerUSA background check or credit reports, you have the right to dispute that information.
The two most common background check errors are:

  • Mixed files – another person’s information shows up on your background report because of a similar name or address.
  • Outdated information – information contained in a background check that should not be there due to how old the information is or due to the fact that the record had been updated. This could be things like a charge that was dropped, a record was expunged, an old bankruptcy.

It is important to dispute inaccurate information right away.

How Long Does an AmerUSA Background Check Dispute Take?

Once you file a dispute with AmerUSA, they have 30 days to investigate and prove that the information they have is correct, or remove the errors.

Can I Sue AmerUSA for Background Check Errors?

If you were denied an apartment or housing, or leasing terms changed, or an increased deposit, or increase in renters insurance due to inaccurate information on a tenant background check or credit report, you may have a case and you may be able to sue in federal court.
