AmRent Tenant Screening Errors & Your Rights

Dispute Tenant Screening Report Errors

Sadly, tenant screening errors are very common. When companies use automated systems for quick results, it can often produce inaccuracies. Common causes of tenant screening errors include:

  • Mixed File: Information incorrectly attached to your report can result from similar names, dates of birth, or even records of family members.
  • Outdated Databases: Failed updates or removal of old records can result in expired data affecting your report. Examples are bankruptcies that should be removed or expunged criminal records.
  • Clerical Errors: Simple human or system errors in data entry or interpretation can create inaccuracies.

Any of these errors can prevent you from being able to rent an apartment or a house. If you were denied an apartment or housing due to errors on your rental screening report, you may have a case and be able to sue in federal court. Get a free case review.
