The service was really easy to use and the best part was the peace of mind, knowing that a potential tenant was thoroughly checked.. Personal background, finances, etc.. The second best part? The customer service! Jay answered my call each time, and even though it was a the day after a big Holiday weekend, he personally walked me the through my potential tenants finished report, which was available almost immediately after the applicant finished their portion of the application. The $35 fee was paid directly by the applicant, so I didn't even have to ask for reimbursement, either. Great service!

This service is even better than I said last year. This year I got a report on an applicant that showed a long criminal history and bad credit history. I couldn't believe it because the person I met did not match that profile. So I contacted Tenant Magic and Jay (the owner himself) got me the actual court documents. TM saved me big time! But, though the website has improved, you still gotta make sure you know how to navigate the reports. Clicking on certain lines will open up more detailed reports, but that is not obvious so you should click on any link to see what's behind it.

I really like TenantMagic for background/credit checks. My tenants love it too because they go online and initiate and pay for the check. Because they do, their credit doesn't get dinged at all. It's a reasonable price for them and a very readable report for landlords
