Is there a website where I can check a prospective tenant to see if he owes other landlords money?

Have your realtor run a credit check and a background check. The background check should pull any unlawful detainer actions that they may have had in the past.

i would suggest you do a credit check and a background check, also get the previous address and contact the owner, go through the public records to find out who the owner is and ask them how that tenant was. 
Good luck to you

There is not a landlord reporting website for past due tenants that I have ever heard of. You can call the last ones listed on the application and try to get the details....Would you rent to them again?
Were they ever late with rent? Did they damage anything?

I screen my tenants through the local Renters Housing Association.

They screen credit.  Background check-meaning criminal and they also screen eviction history's too.

Check your local organization and join.  It's low cost and their fee is tax deductable.  Protect yourself!!!!  They have saved me countless times!
