Tenant Screening

Not all credit data sources are alike. Checkpoint Screening uses only the highest quality credit and public record information. Our premium data and expert analysis will help you select the best tenants quickly. The eviction process is a nightmare. It costs you months of lost rent and thousands in legal fees. Save yourself from that burden by finding the right tenant to begin with using our best in the business screening services.

When performing tenant screening, accuracy of information is critical. Legal compliance is an important consideration in the screening process. It is a violation of the law to use aged or inaccurate record information. Many background screening companies obtain old and inaccurate information and pass it on to you. Skipping the information review process saves them money but creates significant legal exposure for you. Legal actions brought by prospective tenants can cost tens of thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees to defend and consume massive amounts of your time. Legal compliance is of paramount importance at Checkpoint Screening. A detailed accuracy review is performed on every report we complete. We do not increase your legal exposure to reduce our costs!
