SmartMove Tenant Screening

Insurance West understands the Landlord market——we are specialists in this space. In addition to our customizable policies, market research and product expertise, we’re focused on giving landlords like you choices and tools to protect your investment. Now we are working with TransUnion SmartMove to offer you an easy-to-use, cost-effective way to screen potential applicants!

Landlord Benefits:

Who wants to commit a rental property for 12 months to a complete stranger? When landlords screen tenants before a contract is signed, you have the peace of mind that comes from knowing you did your homework first.

 Here are a few other ways you benefit:

  • You don’t want to worry about what you don’t know. With a credit report, criminal background check and eviction history, you can make a more informed decision about a potential tenant.
  • It’s part of an easy process. SmartMove takes the legwork out of it. All you have to do is set it up, get the information to the tenant, and SmartMove takes care of the rest. The tenant information will be sent directly to your inbox. Overall, the Resident score predicts evictions 8% better than a general credit score in the bottom score ranges where risk is greatest, based on an internal comparative study conducted by TransUnion in 2013.
  • Insurance West also offers a discount on a Landlord policy for several different types of tenant screening!
  • You can pay for the report or pass it on to your tenant. That’s up to you either way, we provide a discount on the screening fee!

Here’s how it works: 

  • You the landlord signs up for a free account and application online at
  • You the landlord invite potential tenants to apply by entering their email address into the application, then decide if you want to pay the discounted fee yourself or pass it to your tenant.
  • The tenant authorizes the screening process and verifies their identity online
  • SmartMove delivers the reports and a recommendation directly to you the landlord.
  • It’s that easy!
