I have an eye on you: Instant tenant screening

If you’ve ever rented an apartment or a house you know that the ideal situation is to have a nice tenant who pays the rent every month and doesn’t cause any trouble. A lot of times a tenant seems like a decent person and the next thing you know they knock out a wall (without permission) because they want more room to think. Thus that “ideal situation” may evolve as the months go by and often just getting the rent one time trumps anything else the home/apartment owner may have hoped for in a tenant.

Those worries may be a thing of the past thanks to a new Instant Tenant Screening feature launched by theRRD (formerly The Rent Rite Directory). TheRRD offers a comprehensive list of real estate services for real estate professionals, property owners, tenants, renters, property managers and home sellers.

Big brother is watching?

Accessing technology like this is almost like having Big Brother watching out for you. Instant Tenant Screening provides an easy-to-use service to landlords and for people looking for roommates or tenants. The feature includes criminal background and credit checks, including an eviction, liens and judgment-search. This data is extremely useful when picking a new roommate or tenant. All information is pulled and aggregated from reputable national repositories.

Get roommate and tenant reports immediately

The last thing a property owner needs is worrying about whether or not a potential tenant is going to bring with them a back-story full of melodrama and aggravation. Instant Tenant Screening is simple to use and the reports generate almost immediately. Reports can be ordered once the landlord or co-roommate receives authorization from a prospective renter.

Within seconds the landlord/roommate will receive their reports and be able to better assess the viability of the prospective tenant.

According to Joe Killinger, Co-Founder of theRRD, “The new service provides an added benefit for people when looking for their new roommate and tenant. To be able to know of any potential red flags before signing a lease will be very helpful for so many.”

Killinger says that theRRD is the first company to combine all the important reports and background checks into one easy-to-read summary report.
