Massachusetts Tenant Screening Background Checks

It is imperative to thoroughly screen every applicant, not just the primary applicant. Massachusetts Tenant Screening offers comprehensive screening tools that will help ensure that you only rent to the best-qualified prospective tenants. Screening every adult applicant, including spouses, significant others and adult children of the primary applicant will greatly assist in weeding out unqualified tenants who may be your worst nightmare. The American Apartment Owners Association provides Massachusetts Tenant Screening packages that will suit your screening needs, no matter if you have just one Massachusetts rental property or hundreds of rental properties.

The Massachusetts Office of Consumer Affairs & Business Regulation urges landlords to obtain a credit report on prospective tenants. This is easy to accomplish with the free credit report that is included with every Massachusetts Tenant Screening package. It is also imperative to obtain the applicant’s prior rental history, which you can do with the Previous Address Tenant History.

Determine if your applicant is potentially committing identity theft with the SSN Fraud Report. An applicant could give you a fake social security number or one stolen from another person in attempt to hide his or her true identity due to criminal history or other reasons such as poor rental history. The SSN Fraud Report can reveal if your applicant is indeed who they claim to be and can make other matches to determine the validity of the social security number given by an applicant on the rental application.

Massachusetts Landlord Tenant Screening also searches for eviction history and gives you the option to conduct a state specific search or a nationwide search to uncover any potential eviction history.

Discover whether your applicants have a criminal history. You can search for criminal history on a state specific level or a national level, including a search for terrorist and sex offender records. Do not let your rental properties become a haven for criminal activity. Criminals often move from one rental property to the next, especially if apprehended when in the course of conducting criminal acts at a former rental property. Massachusetts Tenant Screening allows you to eliminate applicants who have a criminal record, evictions or history of not paying bills on time when you instantly gain access to the records of every report that you order. Protect your property and reputation by renting to your highly qualified applicants who are likely to take care of the property, pay rent on time and not violate other aspects of Massachusetts Landlord Tenant Laws.
