Resident Screening Sites

Under the City Ordinance criminal background checks are mandatory.

Below is a list of a few web-based companies that provide comprehensive background check services on a state level. This list is provided only as a service to assist you in finding background investigation services, and is not meant to be an exhaustive list of such companies. This list is not intended as an endorsement or recommendation by the City of Aurora.

Criminal Background check must be a state or national search.
Remember! You have the power to prevent problems. You should use the most thorough process possible to screen prospective tenants because the worst time to screen your residents is during the eviction process.
