Originally written with help of the Saint Louis City Attorneys, HomeScreen is a completely non-discriminatory, Fair Housing-compliant tenant screening service, free of charge for any landlord looking to find and maintain good tenants. We have access to the most current and comprehensive credit data through Equifax. We use three data points, provided by the applicant, to conduct a national criminal background and national eviction search, and verify all of the references listed by the applicant, including current employer and current and previous landlords.
HomeScreen is a product of the Tower Grove Neighborhoods Community Development Corporation. TGNCDC is a non-profit, non-denominational organization that works to improve the quality of life in the Shaw, Southwest Garden and Tower Grove South neighborhoods by addressing community development related issues. Our mission is to promote and improve the quality of life by attracting public and private investment and providing real estate and other community services. Our verification and screening service started over 15 years ago in the Tower Grove Neighborhoods, but has grown to meet the needs of surrounding communities in the City of Saint Louis, St. Louis County, Illinois and across the country.
We believe tenant screening benefits everyone! Landlords have a more reliable source of income and reduce their risk of costly evictions. Tenants know that people they may be sharing spaces with have been through the same thorough screening. And, other area residents have considerate neighbors! We hope to work with you to create desirable, stable neighborhoods for everyone!
