Tenant verification services

3 Replies

Hi,
The tenant background check service I usually use (not going to name them here) no longer does employment verification.
a) Is there a service you recommend?
b) If I do it myself, is there standard questions I should/can ask?
c)If I do it myself, how should it go and/or what should I expect?

Thank you,

@Luke H. Rentprep.com has an option on their screening tool to have them verify employment. I prefer to do it myself through paystubs and calling/emailing the employer.

Ask:

How long has the applicant worked there?

What does the applicant do for the company?

How much do they make?

Is the work temporary or seasonal?

Are they a responsible employee?

Also fake paystubs are a thing. I wouldn't rely on them alone. Usually applicants will make a mistake but I have seen some good ones. Verify them with your employer questions.

I called on one place and they are asking me to send them a FAX with the request. Does anyone have a sample of a request to fax over?

Thank you
