Tenant Reputations has structured a unique platform for landlords to grade previous tenants, Good or Bad, and share that information with the landlord community using a simple A through F grading scale. This first ever grading system will completely change the current process of screening potential tenants. It's completely FREE for those landlords who contribute their tenant’s behavior. For every tenant you grade, you get a free search token to screen a future tenant.
