I want to rent rooms in my house. Where can I run background/credit checks on applicants online?

recently bought a home in Seattle.  Want to rent out several rooms. Also want to make sure that people are down to earth and won't steal my TV.  Does anyone know any good sites or services that I can use to take care of this for me?

Check out [website removed by Zillow moderator] for an on-line application anyone can use. Pass the fee on to the tenants and you pay nothing!  

Also, [agent website removed by Zillow moderator] has a la carte leasing resources and education! Pick and choose what you need and don't pay for the rest!

I use this one for all my tenants at the properties I manage.

Feel free to contact CBBain Property Management and ask who they use.  Also be sure to include the Seattle Landlord Tenant Laws in your renter package (it's the law that they get a copy).

Check out www.e-renter.com for a credit and background check service.  Charge the applicant a fee to cover the cost.  However, nothing can eliminate the risk completely.

I recommend American DataBank. They have a website where you don't have to create an account -[hotlink removed by Zillow moderator]  Click "Tenant Screening."
