San Mateo County Tenant Screening

Tenant Screening

Our Process for Screening Rental Applicants

Committed to Finding the Right Tenant for Your Investment

While we aim to rent your property swiftly, our priority is securing the RIGHT tenant, not just the fastest one. A quick credit check and employment verification are not enough; our comprehensive screening process includes detailed background and credit checks on every potential tenant. This ensures they are likely to fulfill the lease terms and care for your property responsibly.

Our thorough tenant screening process addresses four crucial questions to determine if an applicant is suitable for your property:

Is the applicant who they claim to be?

    • Verification of Government Issued Identification
    • Social Security Number Verification

Can the applicant afford this property?

    • Pre-screening Income Qualification
    • Income Verification
    • Employment Verification

Does the applicant have a history of paying their bills?

    • Credit Score Assessment
    • Previous Address and Tenant History
    • Public Records Search
    • National Eviction Search

Will the applicant be a responsible resident and take care of the property?

    • Previous Landlord Verification
    • National Criminal Search*
    • National Sex Offender Search
    • International Terrorism Database Search

*Important Note: Criminal checks focus only on convictions.

We process all applications in compliance with Fair Housing Guidelines, ensuring no discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin.
