LCBR & TENANTTRACKS - Have you taken advantage of the agreement
Litchfield County Board of REALTORS has with TenantTracks? They offer
exclusive historical and up-to-date eviction data from all 15
Connecticut Courts covering Summary Process cases including Bantam
Court. Other screening services typically provide eviction data from
just the 6 major Housing Courts in Connecticut leaving owners at risk.
All evictions in Litchfield County are conducted at the Bantam
Courthouse and their eviction records are not online or part of a
national database. Rental property owners are at risk of non-paying,
disruptive and/or destructive tenants moving around unchecked if people
are not screening renters through TenantTracks.
Recently TenantTracks has implemented
a new screening algorithm that allows the user to search for known
"Alias Names" and "Nicknames" against all our CT Civil, Eviction and
Criminal databases. To learn more about this feature,
