Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a Thomas Report instead of a free credit report?

When Thomas Reports submits a report to the building on behalf of a prospective tenant, the building knows the report is legitimate and has not been altered. 


How do I know which Thomas Report to choose?

The building chooses the level of report required for potential tenants.  Please see our client database.  Dropbox/Client Database.


When will my report be delivered?

The report delivery date is calculated when we received the FORM, not the order.

All report forms received after 11:00 a.m. central time, will begin processing on the next business day.  Only business days are counted in the report delivery date.  (For example: a 7-day gold report arrives at 1:15 p.m. on Monday, December 7.  Starting on December 8, count only business days.  The report is due December 16.)


Can I get a copy of my report?

As a reseller of credit information, Thomas Reports can only provide reports to registered end-users with the permissible purpose of tenant screening.  Only property managers are registered end-users.  This information is in our Terms and Conditions.  By clicking the box, they agreed to this.
