Searching for and applying for apartments and housing can be stressful, especially when it comes to the tenant screening portion of the application process. During the tenant screening process, landlords and apartment management companies typically turn to third party screening services to conduct background checks on potential tenants. These third party companies conduct background checks on prospective tenants and then provide landlords and management companies with detailed background check reports.

Unfortunately, consumers ares sometimes denied apartments or housing due to information contained in their background check report. This can be incredibly distressing to applicants, and can be made worse if it is later discovered that the background check report contained false or inaccurate information, leading to the denial.

You may be entitled to financial compensation:

If you believe you have been denied housing or an apartment due to false or inaccurate information in your background check report, don’t lose hope. Speak with an experienced background check attorney to discuss what options for recovery may be available to you. If an inaccurate background check report caused you to be denied housing, the entities reporting the inaccurate information may have violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and as a result, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
