Background Checks for Mobile Home & Trailer Park Renters

In order to protect their investment, mobile home & trailer park owners must screen park residents to be a good fit among their established residents. Background checks enable you to protect good tenants while enabling a calculated risk decision to avoid what could be a problem tenant.

Why credit reports are useless when screening tenants

Why? Because eviction judgments (forcible detainer and unlawful detainer judgments) are no longer being provided in credit reports, as they fall into the civil judgment category. As of July 1st, 2017 — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion lawsuit settlement with various state AGs, agreed to the creation of the National Consumer Assistance Plan (NCAP). Property owners that rely on credit reports will notice an omission of public records, specifically tax liens and civil judgments that do not contain personally identifiable information (PII). Due to civil judgments traditionally not containing social security numbers and dates of birth (PII), they are being removed from credit reports.

Credit Scores: Are you getting the full tale of the tape?

A sizeable demographic percentage of mobile home renters are retirees who in their latter part of life do not carry credit card balances and thus, may be reported as insufficient credit history in the credit report. In addition, another demographic sector might be the type that pays everything in cash as they might not qualify for credit due to various circumstances. In conclusion, going by a credit score may affect how you judge a potential good paying tenant.

Federal and state fair housing and residential landlord-tenant laws impact the tenant screening process in several ways. In a nutshell, it is a violation of fair housing laws to treat protected individuals differently in the tenant screening process. Fair housing law at the federal level is found in Title VIII of the Civil Rights Act of 1968. The residential landlord-tenant law often limits what landlords may charge for tenant screening to the actual costs in obtaining the background information, not to exceed the customary costs charged by a screening service in the general area.
