Do I need to complete a consumer report if I am a recipient of rental assistance?

If you are a voucher holder or a recipient of rental assistance from another program, your consumer report will still need reviewed. Here's why.

For those applicants receiving rental assistance, expectations of incomes and credit scores will be modified accordingly. However, your consumer report will still need to be taken into consideration. The report ordered reviews credit histories as well as criminal and eviction histories. While owners are likely to be less concerned with credit scores, the histories reflected in these reports will still weigh on their decision and need reviewed for each occupant 18 years old+ in the household.
