TENANT SCREENING SERVICE
for LANDLORD and AGENT
What is tenant screening? Tenant screening is the process of looking into someone’s background and history before initiating a real estate transaction, such as the signing of a lease. A rigorous screening process identifies potential “red flags” and provides opportunities to enhance your customer service – both critical to building beneficial long-term relationships with current and prospective tenants. The screening process can be informal, such as a checklist of questions to ask potential tenants or a more formal report gathering and analysis of information to help you make the decision. The important thing is to make sure you have a clear, well thought out policy that is used consistently and applied in the same manner with each new applicant.
