Finding the best resident screening service for your rental community is no easy feat. Beyond the credit report and background check, it can be difficult discerning if a screening company is doing all that they can to protect you and your property. To ensure you get the best resident screening service possible, make sure the company you pick has these 4 vital things.
All properties aim to find quality residents, but few take the time create detailed property guidance and invest in screening. By fleshing out your rental policies and training your staff on proper pre-screening and tenant screening, your commitment can help you increase your net operating income (NOI), decrease future resident problems, and maximize a property’s potential.
If your company gets background information on prospective employees, it’s likely you’re covered by the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Before you get a background screening report, the law requires that you make certain disclosures and get a prospective employee’s authorization. Is it time for a FCRA compliance check?
