Why are Tenant Screening Services Important?

Conducting a tenant check is not only recommended but essential. Understanding whether someone paid rent on time or whether they have an eviction history can prevent months of trouble.

On a tenant screening report, evictions remain visible for seven years. Information like this is crucial. While tenant reports may take time and effort to carry out, there are some great reasons to put in the effort.

Make an Informed Decision

The most important benefit of conducting a rental screening is to make the best decision. A comprehensive tenant screening report tells you everything you need to know about the character and fiscal responsibility of a potential renter.

Chasing tenants for nonpayment and evicting them can take months, with significant legal costs involved. That’s before repairing any damage caused to the property. These tenants put a tremendous financial strain on landlords.

A simple tenant check is an investment well worth making.

Protect Yourself Against Liability

Retaining the documentation from a rigorous tenant verification report protects you in case someone decides to sue you for alleged discrimination.

They demonstrate that you have followed all the laws of your state and that you did not breach a potential renter’s rights when making your decision.

In this respect, the point of a tenant screening report is to demonstrate that you took all reasonable steps during the application process.

Defend Your Community

Under Fair Housing Laws, landlords cannot reject a renter based on the fact they have a criminal history alone. On the other hand, they can use criminal history to make an informed decision.

For example, if someone has recently committed a child sex crime and your home is located two blocks away from an elementary school, you would be able to reject a candidate on this basis.

Landlords must preserve the safety and well-being of other tenants, their neighbors, and their communities when renting out their properties.

How Tenant Screening Services Work

A tenant screening report is the result of an independent screening service, but how do they work?

They are designed to make life simple for landlords. All you need to do is send the required personal information about the tenant to the background check provider. Using this information, they can explore all publicly available records on your behalf.

You can customize your checks according to what you want to know about a tenant. Some of the checks offered include:

  • Criminal history checks
  • Credit checks
  • Sex offender history
  • Eviction history
  • Verification services

They conduct their checks in a manner that ensures both you and the tenant stay compliant with Federal and state law.

While you have a choice regarding the types of checks you can carry out, it is recommended that you obtain as much information as humanly possible. The more data you have, the more informed a decision you can make.

Depending on the service, it may take anywhere from 24 hours to a few days to receive your tenant screening report.

All the information will be presented and categorized conveniently to make determining whether someone is a suitable candidate simple

Take note, the amount of detail you receive largely depends on the service you purchase. Basic checks may reveal nothing more than whether someone has a criminal record.

Tips for Advanced Tenant Screening

Dig deeper into prospective renters and get more information on who they are and how likely they are to be great long-term renters with these tips:

  • Look them up on their social media accounts, if they can be found.
  • Define written qualifications for tenants to attract a higher quality of renter.
  • Beware of false positives, especially if a tenant has a common name.
  • Hold applications for a minimum of seven years to defend yourself from liability.
  • Run a background check on individual applicants if a couple or family is making a rental application.

What Should Be Included in a Tenant Application?

A tenant application should include several key pieces of information. Establishing an in-depth application process early will attract a better quality of tenants and reduce tenant turnover, but what should be included in one of these applications?

Besides the tenant’s basic personal information, you should ask for current and prior residence information. Most landlords will request around five years of residence history. This period is long enough for you to notice trends in their patterns.

It also provides you with multiple references to use so you can find out more about the tenant. It is considered a best practice to contact the candidate’s previous landlord to find out how they were as a tenant.

Next up, there should be information regarding the person’s income. As for proof of income, landlords will typically ask for at least three months of pay stubs and a valid number for their employer.

Again, landlords will be able to call the applicant’s employer to confirm that they work there as part of the tenant verification process.

When it comes to proof of income, the general rule of thumb is that an applicant’s gross income should be a minimum of three times the rent. This ensures that you are more likely to get paid if they experience any financial difficulties.

Legal and Liability Protection

As part of any application, landlords must tread carefully as part of their tenant screening process. Federal and state laws are extremely strict regarding what you can and cannot ask for when screening tenants.

Since you will be exploring a prospective tenant’s personal information, there are several legal disclosures you need to make to both protect yourself and the rights of the tenant

These include:

  • Applicant’s Assurance – This allows you to deny an applicant if any of the information they write down on their application turns out to be false. It protects you from Fair Housing violations.
  • Liability – This clause releases you from any negative results arising from the rental screening process.
  • Extended Authorization – This gives the landlord the right to collect debts after the tenant vacates the property.
  • Holding Fee – This details the terms regarding their security deposit if they are approved. It also allows you to make the rental property available to other applicants if the deposit is not paid by a specific deadline.
  • Move-In Requirements – This tells the tenant what is required of them if they are approved but before they receive the keys to the property. It could include information on any fees, changing the name of the utilities, and security deposits.

Managing all the legal aspects of an application can be a major obstacle for even the most experienced landlords. Rules change all the time, particularly when it comes to the Federal Fair Housing Act.

This is where tenant screening services for landlords can prove to be a shrewd investment.

Tenant Credit Check

Would you like to know if your candidate has bounced checks before they pass one off to you? Include the large TeleCheck bad check database, the same information used by merchants nationwide, in your next tenant check. We proudly offer credit reports by all three major credit bureaus. All accounts are set to receive a TransUnion report by default. However, if you become underwritten you will have the option of selecting an Experian, TransUnion and/or Equifax report.

Once you check tenant credit, you easily can tell whether your applicant can afford the rent, is employed, or has a good payment history. With additional reports, you also can discover if the candidate has a dangerous criminal history, has been evicted in the past, or is hiding a previous address.

A word of caution when you check tenant credit: Avoid using a report provided by the rental applicant. It's too easy to falsify the information on a rental screening and it may be difficult to determine how old the report is. There would be no way of knowing if the tenant is trying to hide something.

Verifying Your Tenant

Without this information provided through our tenant verification services, it would be easy for a bad tenant to take advantage of you. In fact, problem tenants often know more about rental tenant checks than a new landlord. Don't be a victim. Protect yourself, and your property.

Rental applicants come from all sorts of unique environments and circumstances. Many aren't perfect, but they make good tenants just the same. However, some candidates are flat-out liars, and a landlord must spot them quickly to avoid problems down the road. Learn to spot sketchy applicants quickly by recognizing these tenant screening red flags.

Criminal Reports

A landlord may incur legal liability if someone is injured by a tenant if that tenant has a criminal record. That's why it's important for your tenant reports to include a criminal history and to check every tenant against sex offender and terrorist databases. You avoid liability, and an uproar in the community

Eviction Reports

Many professional landlords and property managers will refuse to rent to a candidate who has an eviction history as well they should as long as all candidates are held to the same rental screening criteria. Rest assured the prospective tenant is aware of that and is trying even harder to withhold information on their tenant application from the next landlord. Get a full report that notifies you of records on file and isn't just a credit criminal screening report
