Tenant Screening

It used to be that 15-20 years ago a hand shake was good enough to seal the deal in not just tenant screening, but most transactions. People really were as good as their word. Today a hand shake just doesn't cut it. Tenant screening including tenant credit checks, criminal record checks, eviction record searches and employment & income checks are a necessary part in determining if your prospective tenant has a good rental history and will be a rent worthy tenant for you.

TVS Tenant Verification Service Inc. provides landlords, property managers and realtors with the reports necessary to help with their tenant verification and screening needs. TVS can provide tenant credit checks (also known as consumer credit history) from Experian and Trans Union Credit Bureau in the United States. Criminal record searches, eviction searches and employment & incomes checks are also available.

TVS offers tenant verification and tenant screening solutions online with quick delivery results. Consumer credit reports are returned with 1-2 minutes while criminal and eviction searches with clear results are returned within 1-4 business hours.

TVS also recommends that you perform further due diligence in addition to the reports you obtain from our tenant verification and tenant screening service. Contact any previous landlords with regards to their rental history and inquire as to what type of tenant they were. i.e.: Were they noisy? Did they leave any damage? Did they pay their rent on time? It is also recommended that you contact their employer to determine if they have stable employment.

Before you do any tenant screening to help prevent landlord fraud, it is a good idea to first determine what criteria you would like your prospective tenant to meet. Determine first what would constitute a good rental history and what qualifications you would like your prospective tenant to meet, this way you will not be discriminating against any applicants as you will be using the same criterion for each one.
