Frequently asked questions

Experian Connect is designed for landlords and renters, offering a service that enables you to request and access information of individuals who grant permission. While versatile for various industries, it is especially valuable for landlords assessing prospective tenants. When you view a credit report and score through Experian Connect, you can be sure you’re accessing precise information directly from Experian.

An Experian Connect credit report can be used to screen tenants or prospective renters. It includes a complete credit history and credit score.

No, anyone can use Experian Connect to share or request credit, including renters and landlords who have received a consumer’s permission to access the information. Our services are available to individuals who:

  • Have a Social Security Number

  • Are at least 18 years old

  • Do not have a security freeze or fraud alert on their credit

A comprehensive tenant screening report from Zillow includes an Experian credit report, plus Zillow’s residence history, background check, and income and employment verification check.

Zillow’s tenant background check typically includes a national criminal search, sex offender search and eviction history. You can view a sample of Zillow’s CIC tenant background check here.

Running a tenant credit check is a practice that helps landlords make informed decisions when assessing financial responsibility, reduces financial risk and helps protect their investments while ensuring a fair and transparent tenant selection process.

This means that individuals have the ability to grant explicit permission for Experian to provide their credit and personal information with third parties, typically for specific purposes. These reports are generated with the consumer’s consent and are often used in situations such as credit inquiries, rental applications, employment screening and identity verification. The key aspect of consumer permissioned reports is that the individual has control over who can access their credit and personal information and when.

To interact with someone else through this service, you first must go through a three-step invitation process. This process allows both parties to confirm they know and trust the other before authorizing the view of important information, such as a credit report. Successfully completing the invitation process creates a link between the two accounts, and each party is now a connection to the other.

No. When you order or show your credit report and score to your connections, it’s logged as, what we call, a “soft inquiry.”

Yes. In fact, if you’re a small or independent business, it’s important to know your personal credit information, too.
