Would you rush out to buy a new auto based off your gut instinct and the auto salesman's presentation? Would you go into a store to buy a new HD TV based off its appearance and in-store behavior alone? If your dish washer breaks down would you run to the local big box home improvement store and buy one based off what the clerk tells you?
Of course not! The wise person would do some research first that consisted of, among other things, consumer reviews! It pays to read multiple reviews of disparate sources to help you form your opinion on products and services. Such opinions prove to be very accurate when taken in bulk. The more opinions, the more accurate view you will get. Even if there are only a few reviews you can know that at least a single or several consumers had a problem or were delighted with their experience.
Why is there no such system for renters? There are for pay tenant screening sites but renter screening sites only tell you the financial and criminal history of tenants you want to screen. Why take a chance on how the renter presented themselves and tenant screening services. Sometimes credit scores and criminal activity reports don't tell the entire story.
Don't let your default background screening or tenant screening check be the sole landlord resource you use. Use our renter database to see if anyone else has encountered your tenant. Add your own renter information to our database so other landlords can use it as a tool in tenant background checks.
Landlord Toolkits also provides a landlord-driven database of forms and documents including renter application, tenant application, and landlord lease forms. Use this information in conjunction with your tenant screening to make your decision.
