RentBureau Data Added to CsS Services

By Anuradha Kher, Online News EditorAtlanta–RentBureau, an online repository of rental payment histories, has partnered with CsS Services Inc., a resident screening company, to supply CsS with resident rental payment histories to be included as a part of CsS’s resident screening reports.Apartment owners and managers using CsS Services to screen resident applications will now have access to over four million rental payment records in RentBureau’s National Rental Data Exchange (NRDE) database.Owners and managers of more than 60,000 apartment units throughout Georgia currently use CsS. “By using RentBureau’s rental payment data, CsS will be able to make better decisions with more thorough and accurate information,” says Bill Schwartz, president of CsS Services. “We can now better determine a prospective resident’s ability to pay rent, and can reduce the likelihood of missed payments or evictions.”Eric Hartz, president and CEO of RentBureau, tells MHN, “We are helping the industry in reducing bad debts. A lot of people owe money to their previous landlords but this does not show up in the person’s credit history. Through us, property managers can get a person’s rental payment history.”Renters can also access their rental payment history directly through RentBureau.
