MyScreeingReport is a tenant screening service that provides background and credit information of rental applicants. Applicants pay for the report and can reuse the tenant screening report as many times as needed for 30 days. MyScreeningReport was part of Moco tenant screening but was purchased in October 2021 by Global Verification Network.
Tenant screening reports are used by landlords to determine whether or not your application will be accepted or denied. It is crucial that these reports are correct. However, tenant screening errors are something we see often.
When your tenant screening report is incorrect it can be devastating and cause major delays in your ability to find an apartment or a house. If your MyScreeningReport background check or credit report had errors you may have a case. Get a free case review now.
The most common type of error we see is when information belonging to another person is on your report. This can happen with any part of the report including criminal history, sex offender registry, terrorist watchlists, and credit reports to name a few. Outdated information such as old bankruptcies or an expunged record are also common types of mistakes that end up on tenant screening reports.
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) you have rights. You have the right to dispute any information you believe is false that shows up on your report. You also have the right to sue the company that reported those errors.
To dispute inaccurate information on a credit report or background check issued as part of your tenant screening you will need to contact myscreeningreport. When disputing errors it is important to provide copies of any documents or information that you have in order to prove that they have reported errors. Once you file a dispute, MyScreeningReport will have 30 days to investigate your claim and correct any false information contained in their report. The down side is that 30 days is a long time and the apartment or house you were going to rent may not be available then.
