I am searching for the best tenant screening service out there. In the past I have used e renter but have not been fully satisfied since the reporting I got seemed to be just statewide and the tenant I ended up renting to had judgments out of state that did not show up on the report and I ended up having to evict them.
Has anyone here used this service www.tenantscreeningbackgroundcheck.com ? I have been looking at sample reports and it appears that their data comes from the entire USA. Any comments or suggested would be greatly appreciated.
You really should do a credit AND background check. I’ve always been satisfied with e-renter.com. Never had any issues. They definitely use nationwide sources for the background check as I’ve had applicants flagged for multiple issues in multiple states. And if you’re a small landlord, you can use their credit check option that does not require an on-site inspection.
Customer service is important as well. Call around to various companies and see who’s most helpful.
I would really recommend just doing it yourself if you have the time. I find that it’s good to look at credit history and call the applicant’s employer to see if the tenant will be a good fit for me. I recently bought a 2 unit rental property in Oregon and I live in California. I was also thinking of purchasing a home warranty because my property is in Oregon. Does anyone have any experience with purchasing a home warranty or personal experiences with home warranties. Thanks.
