NCS Announces a Smart Tenant Screening Solution Powered by TransUnion.

Independent landlords obtain the results they want – and renters the security they need.

EGG HARBOR CITY, NJ – (December 20, 2017) – NCS (National Credit-reporting System, Inc.), a trusted risk mitigation and verification solutions provider is pleased to introduce TransUnion SmartMove® to their solution portfolio. SmartMove is a comprehensive tenant screening package powered by TransUnion, providing independent landlords, real estate agents and property managers with access to their rental applicants’ credit, criminal and eviction reports.

Based on TransUnion Q2 2014 data, SmartMove® found that total eviction-related expenses for property managers averaged $3,500. The analysis found that eviction-related expenses, which include legal fees, lost rent, court costs, and property damages can reach as high as $10,000. SmartMove® allows landlords to obtain a national report of the applicant's past evictions alongside credit and national criminal reports.

“I can personally attest to SmartMove® being a great solution, as I have used it for several years with remarkable success,” said Curtis Knuth, President and CEO of NCS. “TransUnion supports the SmartMove® platform very well and we’re already seeing good marketplace traction, which is quite encouraging.”

SmartMove® is an easy, reliable online tenant screening solution designed to give independent landlords the results they want in minutes -- and renters the security they need. Landlords receive a TransUnion credit report formatted exclusively for rental screening purposes, a criminal report drawing from hundreds of millions of national and statewide criminal records, a national eviction report, and a clear, reliable and customized leasing recommendation. Renters get peace of mind by providing their personal information directly to TransUnion, and not their landlord.
