Tenant Screening


Tenant Screening Service

Tenant screening goes hand in hand with tenant acquisition, as acquiring quality tenants is the most important part of the acquisition process. It can be easy to find people to occupy your rental property, but you don’t want just anyone living there. Red Umbrella offers tenant screening services including background checks and credit scoring to ensure that tenants have a great history. What goes into the tenant screening process?

Why is Tenant Screening Important?

Tenant screening ensures that all of the tenants in your rental property have great rental histories and that they will pay their rent on time, rent for long periods of time, keep the rental unit in optimal condition, and be good neighbors. The best way to prevent bad tenants and the resulting headaches is by not letting bad tenants become tenants in the first place.

Background Checks

Comprehensive background checks are essential when it comes to preventing your property from falling victim to a scam or a notoriously bad tenant. Red Umbrella will conduct a thorough background check including verifying any and all employers listed, application information verification, calling and interviewing personal and professional references, and searching in public records for any eviction or bankruptcy cases.

Background checks will examine the past rental history of an applicant. Were they frequently late on rent or evicted? Have they broken leases in the past? We want to let you know about any red flags before the lease is signed so that you can reject the application or investigate the situation further with the tenant. We also conduct criminal background checks to ensure that you, your property, and all of your residents are safe.

Credit Checks

Credit checks are one of the most important things examined when it comes to renting property. Your tenant’s credit score reveals how good they are at handling money and paying off debts that they have incurred, whether they are car loans or credit card debt. It is not the be all end all when it comes to finding great tenants, but it can be an indicator of potential issues down the line.
