TransUnion Now Provides Rental Screening on Postlets, a Zillow Company

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Jan 11, 2012) - TransUnion, a global leader in information and risk management, today announced the company now offers rental screening for landlords and property managers on Postlets®. Postlets, a Zillow® company, is a leading online real estate listing creation and distribution platform. Postlets enables individual real estate agents, property managers and landlords to create listings and send them to 13 real estate and social media websites.

"TransUnion on Postlets is a natural fit -- we both want to help renters and landlords through a fast, safe and secure screening process," said Steve Roe, vice president in TransUnion's rental screening business unit. "We look forward to combining our years of experience in information and risk management with Postlets online tools to reach a broader audience."

Starting today, landlords and property managers using Postlets will have access to the TransUnion SmartMove® rental screening tool at a discounted rate. TransUnion SmartMove will provide landlords with credit and criminal background data within minutes instead of days, and renters can feel confident this information is being exchanged in a secure manner, unlike the historic process of providing Social Security numbers directly to landlords.
