What are the Benefits of Fully Screening a Tenant?

The typical screening process includes verifying income by reviewing paystubs and/or bank statements, reviewing an applicant supplied credit report, and verifying rental history by contacting the current ad previous landlords. With these basic, very important steps, a landlord can get a good sense of the applicant’s capacity and ability to pay rent. However, there is still more that can be done.

What else does 24 Hour Property Management do?

On top of the basic items previously mentioned, we run a thorough criminal background check and eviction history check. These extra steps are important because these additional services reveal things about applicants that are either not readily available in public records or occurred prior to the one or two years of recent history you are examining. Did you know that in California, a tenant can legally break a lease if he or she is a victim of domestic abuse in the leased property? Wouldn’t you like to know if one of your applicants had a criminal history of domestic abuse in order to mitigate against a broken lease?
