RentBureau, a credit bureau for the multifamily industry, has launched, a Web site that provides immediate verification of rental history.

The new Web site was created to eliminate the cost and time wasted by former and potential landlords faxing, calling, and waiting for applicant rental verification. It uses RentBureau's proprietary database, which collects rental payment histories every 24 hours from its national network of property owners and managers. Members of this network furnish their rental data directly to RentBureau from their property management software. In return, members can search for rental payment histories on new applicants through their existing screening service.

Rental confirmation reports also are available for nonmember companies that want to utilize the proprietary data for a fee.

RentBureau also offers products that monitor, confirm, and predict a resident's rent payments, as well as build credit for responsible renters.
