Tenant Screening in Indiana is permissible with the applicant's permission, typically provided when they sign off on the rental application. You are required to file the application or record of signature release for 5 years. You can then run an online tenant credit, criminal background check and an eviction report to determine if they meet your ideal requirements for a tenant. Detailed tenant credit reports require an onsite inspection of the screener's office location to comply with the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, however tenant credit report information including the renter's credit score can be obtained utilizing the Plus Level Service from Advantage Tenant.
Criminal data on Indiana residents must be performed at the county level.
