Buildium Introduces Comprehensive and Affordable Tenant Screening Solution Through TransUnion Partnership

Boston, MA, July 1, 2009 (PRWEB) – Premiere online property management software company Buildium, LLC today announced its partnership with TransUnion, one of the country’s three major credit-reporting companies. This partnership provides landlords and property managers with access to the same tenant screening technology previously only available to the nation’s largest property management companies.

“Our partnership with TransUnion gives landlords and property managers access to one of the industry’s most comprehensive criminal and credit background databases,” says Michael Monteiro, partner and co-founder of Buildium, LLC. “The really exciting news is that there are minimal requirements to get started. Users can literally begin screening prospective tenants in minutes.”

Integrated into Buildium’s user-friendly online property management software, this new tenant screening feature allows customers to run background checks on perspective tenants directly from the Buildium program. Applicants provide identifying information, such as a Social Security number, directly to TransUnion and Buildium then presents screening results in real-time.

“TransUnion’s goal is to make tenant screening accessible to landlords and property managers of all sizes,” says Kristen Hillier, senior manager with TransUnion Rental Screening Solutions. “With Buildium’s technology and integrated platform, we are bringing actionable data to the rental community at a time when it is most needed due to the dynamic nature of the economy.”
