It is now a routine procedure that most apartments in the Dallas-Fort-Worth area conduct credit checks and criminal background checks before leasing an apartment. This practice was institutionalized mainly by the Patriot Act which was enacted after September 11, 2001. It has also been sanctioned by the different housing laws that have been tweaked further since this fateful day.
Apartment applicants are now facing more checks even as information gathering and storing evolves more. In the Dallas-Forth Worth area, apartment leasing offices will conduct credit checks and background checks by accessing:
- The credit reports from one or three of the credit bureaus
- Tenant rental and eviction history
- Sex offender registry
- Court records
