Hereof, what kind of credit report do landlords use?
There are three different credit bureaus a landlord may use to run a credit check -- Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Credit bureaus may report different information and a landlord can use any or all of the bureaus to get an idea of credit worthiness and financial management.
One may also ask, is it normal to ask for bank information on a rental application? Some rental lease applications ask for your bank account numbers and balance amounts.
