Ideal for larger portfolios, CIC provides direct-to-property tenant screening. This option delivers instant results 24/7 with the only requirement being a signed authorization from your applicants to order their credit report. You can choose between all 3 bureaus, criminal and eviction records, SSN trace and more!

Getting set up takes 5-7 business days. All CIC resident screening accounts have a one-time setup fee that covers the physical inspection of your office required by the bureaus. This one-time fee is $54 and is paid directly to the inspection company.
