  • FCRA Compliance: I hereby agree to comply with the provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (15 USC 16810) and to only request consumer credit report information for the sole purpose of determining my prospective tenant’s credit worthiness and identity. I agree that I will receive from the tenant their signed consent and I understand that I must keep it on file for a period of no shorter than 5 years. I shall hold in the strictest confidence all information received and will abide by the Access Security Requirements. I certify that I am not using this information for a bail bond company, credit repair company (including credit counseling and credit clinics), investigative company (including private investigators and detective agencies), attorney or paralegal firm, news agency or journalist, law enforcement personnel, dating service, asset location service; I have never been involved in credit fraud or other unethical business practices; and that the business operation for which this application is being made is one of renting real property (houses, apartments, or commercial) in which I do not occupy the unit.
