Kraniac,

Safe to assume that you're disclosing to the prospective tenant you're checking his/her credit report. Same goes if you're going a step beyond that and performing a background check. I once gave the management company of a coop hell because they didn't disclose that their credit check was in fact both a credit and background check. They aren't the same thing and failure to disclose could result in a liability issue.

Clark Howard also has some recommendations he has made on his web site. I believe he also mentioned cozy.co favorably on won of his recent radio shows.

Clay..i start going through the process on Cozyu.. and Cozy wanted to send an email to my potential tenants as a request to 'ok' this credit report...it then tried to bill them 40 dollars each for the report..is that's what's meant by 'free'?..that they pay and not me?

..which they already do, i have their money for the credit check

..sorta thinking im missing something here..
