Rental Background Check
Rental Background Checks are more than simply a credit check. It includes research covering their employment history, prior landlords, eviction checks, criminal checks etc. It is recommended in an attempt to avoid "bad" tenants. It is not a guarantee. It will however, reduce a potentially large risk. Rental Background Checks are relatively cheap but worth the investment. United Screening can perform comprehensive tenant checks on behalf of the landlord.
Tenants with a 'spotty' rental background will avoid going to landlords who perform thorough checks. They target landlords that are managing their own properties, because many of them don’t bother with background checks. It’s important to get all your prospective tenants checked before signing a lease with them. In order to perform a background check, you will need permission from the prospective tenant. The applicant will need to sign a release authorizing the landlord/agent to perform a background check.
Bad tenants know the process to appeal evictions and the process is then lengthened because the court needs to look into the issue before dismissing it. The claims usually get dismissed because they are untrue, but by the time each appeal goes to court, months go by, leaving the landlord severely out of pocket while the tenant still remains living in the property.
Landlords can run credit checks to learn more about a prospective tenant's past rental history,but should use a qualified company to do so. The rental history of a tenant is used to determine a tenant's behavior in future rental situations. Any landlord who reports a tenant's payment history to a credit bureau, will show up on a credit check.
