Protect Your Rental Investment with Tenant Screening
Today’s automated tenant screening reports are easy to access and easy to read.
In a matter of minutes, you can determine whether your rental applicant is telling the truth, or if you have a potential problem tenant on your hands.
Basic renter credit checks protect your property from tenants who try to hide bad credit or other problems in their rental background.
By cross-referencing reports, you can catch discrepancies that can only lead to one conclusion — this applicant would not make a good tenant.
When you check a potential tenant’s credit, you can determine how your applicants have treated other creditors—a telltale sign of whether they will pay rent on time.
You’ll also know if a candidate is using someone else’s information to try to get access to your rental property.
