Rental Credit Reporting (RCR) was established in 1977 to solve screening problems the Houston Apartment Association founders felt plagued the local apartment industry. RCR has unsurpassed data on resident rental histories in the Houston region. 

The Houston Apartment Association and SafeRent Solutions have partnered to expand RCR in order to provide more resources to make consistent, accurate and Fair Housing compliant leasing decisions. RCR  includes the following searches in one bundled report with unlimited inquiry access.

Housing Court Data Search - Searches millions of landlord-tenant records including judgements for rent and possession and prior inquiries supplied by courthouses across the country. Address history includes additional addresses not linked to the credit report, such as a relative's house or other informal rental agreements.  

Multi-State Criminal Data Search - These reports display conviction data available in most states plus Washington, D.C. Leasing professionals use this product to get more comprehensive data than what's available in single-state reports.  

Terrorist Check - OFAC listings of known or suspected terrorists, fugitives and Most Wanted alerts from various federal data sources, including FBI and other federal agencies. 

Multi-State Sex Offender Search - Check registered sex offenders using sources nationwide, including the Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies. Registry is available for all states and Guam. 

Move-in/Move-out Entry - Submit your property’s rental history data online through RCR's familiar and easy-to-use tools.

Eviction Entry - Protect yourself and other properties by registering your evictions with RCR.
