System Merges Credit Reports for Landlords

Direct Experian, Trans Union, and Equifax credit bureau interface provides important service to  property management companies.

Landlord Guard, Inc, provides online tenant screening for property management purposes, with the assistance of the MERit Credit Engine, a software interface to the credit bureaus.

The MERit Credit Engine (MCE) was chosen to automate credit report retrieval and approval functions. "We were able to bring it online with minimal delay because the MCE software handles all of the credit bureau protocols for us, and stores the results into a database that our decision process can easily utilize," said Christine Mathis, president of LandLord Guard." MERit has helped bridge the gap in supporting a common interface to the three national credit bureaus, as well as providing us with Internet connectivity and the ability to process large volumes of reports quickly without added transaction fees.

LandLord Guard NEW YORK, NY provides clients of all sizes with a fast, simple, efficient solution to obtaining the most accurate information regarding potential tenants. The proprietary software takes into account the applicants credit report, leasing history (evictions, unlawful detainees, and other court records) and ability to do a criminal background check as well. This professionally researched evaluation allows customers to make wiser decisions about whom they ultimately choose as tenants. By using this reliable service, our clients make more informed decisions, decreasing the risk of "lease jumping," time consuming evictions and property damage, and increasing efficiency of this traditionally time consuming chore.
