The best way to conduct a credit check, is to have the tenant complete the application. On the buttom of the application, it should state that the applicant gives you consent to run his credit. From there, you could run their credit... WITHOUT THAT CONSENT, THE APPLICANT CAN SUE YOU, IF YOU RUN THEIR CREDIT, WITH OUT THEIR CONSENT. You should join an apartment association in your local area.
