For the protection of you and your property, LandlordStation.com offers comprehensive tenant screening that you can feel confident about. We only use best practices and pull from top sources which comply with the Fair Housing Act as set out by the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division. Go beyond the limited information that you get from a standard rental application. Our tenant screening services include important information to provide you with a complete picture of your prospective tenants.
Screening potential tenants allows you to know more information before trusting them with your property and welfare. In order to help you with this, LandlordStation.com offers several different packages allowing you to choose the information you need at a price that is right for you. All of the online tenant screening packages include criminal records, bankruptcy records, foreclosure history, medical collection records and a credit report that includes a score. This basic information will give you a better idea of how stable your new tenant will be in paying rent and can indicate the likelihood of whether or not he or she will get into trouble. For additional minimal fees, the screening services can be expanded to include employment history, known aliases, past address history and eviction records. This additional information can be compared with the information your prospect puts on his or her application as a way to help measure trustworthiness. All reports are stored within your very own secure Document Vault in your Landlord Station account.
In order to obtain screening information from your applicants, make sure that your application asks for all the information needed to run your report. You will need the prospect's full name (first, middle and last) as well as an email address. To ensure that this information is accurate, we suggest that you ask for a copy of their driverâ€™s license, social security card or both. Also, it is not a bad idea to include a release of information clause on your application to keep for your records. With LandlordStation.com, you can place up to 4 tenants on a single screening application. Other information that we suggest you ask for on your application, both for general information and to have as comparison against your screening report, includes: phone number, current and past addresses, current and past landlord contact information, employer and job details, also with contact information, and questions about past evictions or broken leases.
Once you have collected all the information you need from your screenings and external research, you should choose your new tenant in a systematic way, but it is generally best practice to choose the first suitable candidate who turned in an application. It is important to note that while you can use the information found in your tenant screening report to deny an applicant, you cannot deny them based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status or handicap based on national laws. Some state and local governments also prohibit you from denying a prospective tenant because of marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or involvement with Section 8 or other subsidy programs.
