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.

The cost of using TenantTracks is $59 per year for the account set up and compliance fee while each tenant screening report costs only $25.  When applying enter LCBR in the Discount Code Field to receive the rate of $59 for a TenantTracks membership.
Each screening report provides much better data in a comprehensive summary of the prospective tenant’s credit history, national and state eviction and criminal database records, terrorist watch list, civil court, small claims court and sex offender searches.  The report also includes a color-coded, summary page for quick interpretation of the results.  To apply for a membership or for more information about TenantTracks visit their website at www.tenanttracks.com.

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, click here.  11.04.14
