NORTHERN KENTUCKY (FOX19)- It hasn't been easy for landlords in Northern Kentucky to find out if potential renters have previously been evicted.
Normally, they have to check individual court dockets from Boone, Campbell and Kenton County. However, a new website makes uncovering a person's eviction history much easier.
There are tens of thousands of homes and apartments for rent in Northern Kentucky, but a small percentage of the people who live in them are repeatedly being evicted.
Covington's Assistant City Engineer, Mike Yeager says soon landlords will have the ability to find out who those people are.
"The goal is to screen potential tenants," he said.
Yeager says some of those potential tenants have a troubled history.
