What is the Landlord Credit Bureau

The Landlord Credit Bureau is a private organization aiming to be a resource to landlords by providing a central database of tenants and their histories. Landlords can then access this service for a fee and use it as a tenant screening tool.

From their About page found at landlordcreditbureau.com:

Our mission is to improve the businesses and lives of landlords, property managers and responsible tenants. Landlords spend most of their time dealing with the lousy 10% of tenants who cause all of the problems. They rarely hear from the fantastic 90% of tenants and rarely have time to do something nice for them.

It’s unclear what the benefit to tenants is in this arrangement. The site claims vague benefits to the tenant such as:

Improve your credit report
Build a good tenant record
Skip the line, get the place you want
Monitor your records
Authenticate and rate your landlords
