The tenants database contains more than 25 million records from more than 400 sources.

Two-thirds of these companies are matched to our commercial or residential property records. Tenants do not include individuals or families living in apartment buildings. All of our tenant data are comprised of businesses and institutions.

It's helpful just to have a list of tenant names in a given building. It's even better to have additional data about those tenants.

For most tenants, we know how long they've been in business. That's a major indicator of stability. Another date field shows when many of the tenants moved into their current location.

When we match tenants to the building records, we compute the average time in business for all tenants in a building. This average correlates with owner financial risk.

In addition, for most tenants, we know what the tenant firms do for a living. And we usually have a contact person name for an officer or owner of the company.

We have phone numbers for more than 4 million tenants.

We’ve also inserted two additional risk indicators. One flag indicates that the firm has an underground fuel storage tank of its premises. Another flag shows firms with liquor licenses.

Our tenant records have two separate fields for company names in case the firm has both a legal name and a trade name. It’s important. If the legal name is XYZ LLC, you don’t know much. If XYZ’s trade name is Joe’s Pizza, you know more.
