Hello, I have a prospect tenant who isn't from the states and seems like a great candidate, but I'd like to do my due diligence and do a standard application which included a credit and background check. Most websites are set up for domestic only bc you need a social. What are alternative options for this scenario? TIA!

@Jessica Kirkpatrick we rent to a lot of immigrants coming to the US to work, and are in a similar position as you, nothing will come back for a credit/background check. In our situation these immigrants are primarily agriculture workers coming to work on local farms. We have had great success renting to these tenants overall. For us they are on work VISA sponsored by the local farms, the farms spend a lot of money getting them to come work, and therefore do a lot of the vetting to get quality workers. Hope this helps,
