Chicago, July 9, 2024 — Multifamily property managers face a daunting task when it comes to screening applicants. They need to conduct thorough criminal background checks in a timely manner, while observing increasingly stringent consumer privacy regulations. To address this challenge, TransUnion (NYSE: TRU) announced today its collaboration with Asurint to provide a compliance-focused solution for criminal background screening.
TransUnion’s TruVision™ Resident Screening solution now comprises the breadth and depth of Asurint’s criminal background reporting—with coast-to-coast automated coverage across the US. In addition, Asurint’s engine automatically applies federal, state, and local filters designed to address consumer protection and housing regulations, to equip property managers with quality data.

“Multifamily operators need to trust that their resident screening reports are up to date,” said Maitri Johnson, SVP and head of TransUnion’s tenant and employment screening business. “TransUnion’s collaboration with Asurint, allows us to deliver that service to help property managers make informed decisions, while also focusing on consumers’ rights.”

The collaboration also allows TransUnion to deliver background reports with unparalleled speed.
