What We Do

  • USA Tenant Screening

    USA tenant screening is a vital component to minimizing risk of rental income loss for landlords and property managers. Without USA tenant screening high risk tenants are not identified and they continue to use landlords as a revolving line of credit.

    USA tenant screening includes a tenant credit check, and a tenant background check for criminal and eviction records. This kind of due diligence sends a message to the high risk tenant, one of professionalism, and a criteria that demands good tenancy. Where there is a USA tenant screening in place, chances are high risk tenants won't even apply.

  • Tenant Credit Checks

    Tenant Credit Checks or a tenant credit check is one of the most important aspects of your tenant background check. It can determine the truthfulness of the applicant as well as credit worthiness. When you compare the personal information of the tenant from the tenant credit check to the personal information on the rental application, it should match. Often high risk tenants will give a wrong DOB or SSN or misspell their last name. All in an effort to prevent a landlord from obtaining the correct information to determine credit worthiness.

    The tenant credit check is a vital component that makes the tenant background check or renter background check key to minimizing risk of rental income loss. Without a tenant credit check it is difficult to determine pay habits of a prospective renter. Every landlord benefits when tenant credit checks are part of the criterion that makes up a renter background check or a background check for renters.

  • Registered Sex Offender Search

    The TVS Nation Wide Criminal Record Search includes National Registered Sex Offender search. Every landlord should incorporate this type of search in the tenant screening process. There is a liability issue where a Sex Offender obtains tenancy then commits a criminal sexual act. It is incumbent upon landlords and property managers to conduct a reasonable amount of due diligence on each applicant to keep the rental community safe. A search of the Registered Sex Offender list should be part of the criteria when conducting a renter background check or tenant screening.

  • Criminal Record Checks

    A Nation Wide Criminal Record Check is now conducted by professional landlords and property managers across the USA. It minimizes the risk of renting to criminals who may have a negative impact on the rental community, neighbours and landlords themselves. A criminal record check is easy to obtain via TVS and is a key element of a tenant background check.

    Landlords and property managers, have a responsibility to the tenant community and that is keeping it safe.

  • Eviction Record Search

    Why conduct and eviction search? It minimizes the risk of renting to a high risk tenant, which could mean many missed rent payments before you can evict. If the applicant has an eviction record, there is a good chance that your rent won't be paid on time. Old habits die hard as the saying goes, and you are not special!

    An Eviction Record Search is generally limited to two States, the one that is currently being lived in and the previous one if there is a previous address in that State.

    An Eviction Record search should not be relied upon as being 100% factual. Further due diligence needs to be conducted to determine tenant worthiness as landlords or property managers do not report all evictions, nor do they report late rent payments. It is important therefore to contact current and previous landlords to determine what the rent payments were like.

  • Address Verification Search

    An Address Verification search is another great tool when conducting a renter background check. High risk tenants will not list addresses that they have been evicted from. They will tell you that they have been living with parents or relatives for the last 20 yrs.

    Searching for previous addresses or an address verification search can validate what is in the rental application and serves to determine truthfulness. In some instances where a tenant credit report is obtained, it will list some previous addresses. And address verification search is much more thorough however and goes back 20 yrs in some instances.

  • Commercial Credit Check

    A Commercial Credit Check is a valuable tool when attempting to determine the credit worthiness of a company. Many companies' particularly small ones will not have a commercial credit file with any of the bureaus. In this case you will have to ask for references and make some phone calls to determine pay habits.

    TVS provides commercial credit checks, and only charges a fee if there is a file, there is no charge to search. No file no charge. So if you are wanting a Commercial Credit Check, go ahead and search.

  • Tenant Screening

    Tenant screening aka renter background check aka tenant background check is absolutely crucial to renting or leasing residential or commercial property. Why would you turn the key for an expensive property over to an Individual whom you nothing about and where there is a potential for non-rent payment, damaged rental property etc.?

    Tenant screening that includes establishing credit worthiness and tenant worthiness, minimizes risk, plain and simple. No tenant screening? Expect problems.

  • Rent Payments Reporting

    Reporting Rent Payments is likely the single most effective way of making sure that rent is paid on time. When tenants know that pay habits are reported the same as financial institutions report loan pay habits to a credit bureau, chances are the rent will be paid on time.

    A negative tenant history will impact future rent applications, nobody wants that.

    Reporting Rent Payments can benefit good tenants who pay on time. They can receive a Certificate of Satisfactory Tenancy at the end of a lease period which they can take to a new landlord.
