It's easy! Become a member of AAOA by choosing Free, Basic, or Value Membership. Once registered simply log in and order your tenant screening report. You can choose from our a la carte reports or a tenant screening package, the choice is yours.

Do I Need An Inspection To Get Credit Reports On My Tenant?

No! An onsite inspection is not required to obtain a credit report on your tenant. AAOA offers a tenant cooperation method allowing you to bypass the underwriting and inspection process. All members can opt to have an inspection done. Completing an inspection along with providing the additional documents will allow you to gain instant access to credit reports at checkout, no tenant cooperation required.

Free tenant screening packages are automatically credited to your membership account. Simply log in, select a Red, White, Blue, or Gold tenant screening package, and you'll see a credit for it at checkout.
