- About Us
The United States has over 1 million residents in rental housing, which is 35% of the total US population. In Iowa, over 8% of the state’s population is in apartment housing. TenantReports.com can help Iowa landlords with tenant screening to make the application and rental process faster and easier than ever.
Iowa tenant screening records contain information from as early as 1984. It is one of the few states with both public court records, and court searching services readily available. Information obtained through screening cannot be used to alter a current rental agreement, unless the tenant is shown to have breached said agreement.

Department of Corrections
The Department of Corrections stores information on felony and select misdemeanor convictions from the year 1984 onward. Information such as date of birth and social security number may be included with the report.
Iowa, similar to that of other states, allows a landlord or real estate professional to obtain eviction information up to seven years prior to the request.
Driving history can be searched as far back as three years for non-moving violations, five to seven years for moving violations, and ten for OWI records.
