Tenant Identity & Fraud

You don’t have to get burned to understand that identity theft and fraud is growing problem throughout the real estate industry. Protect your properties, business and tenants before anything happens. With an increase in stolen and fraudulent identities, you need to take fraud and identify theft seriously. In addition to date and state of issuance, we cross reference social security information to ensure detection of false or fraudulent identities.

Rental & Eviction History Reports

You get access to in-depth and up-to-date court eviction data and outcomes. If a tenant has been previously evicted, then the likelihood of it happening again is significant.  Don’t let a smooth talker slip through the cracks.  Make sure you’re absolutely certain with this a thorough rental and eviction history report before you approve any application.

History always has a tendency to repeat itself, for better or worse. If a tenant has been evicted before or still owes money on a previous property then they aren’t a good fit for you. Our comprehensive court eviction search won’t let any past evictions slip by you. Access eviction records from every appropriate jurisdiction in every state (where available).

Criminal History Check

Depending on where you are in the United States, around 7% of your tenant applicants are going to be convicted criminals. The key thing to understand here is that running a profitable property management business and keeping your community safe are not conflicting objectives. Years ago, running a criminal background check took several days or weeks to complete. Today, this is no longer the case and, in some instances, can be done instantly. Every good tenant screening process needs to have a comprehensive criminal background search component.
