Anyone ever screen a tenant through SmartMove on rentlaw.com. If so, I’d like to get your feedback. Or, a recommendation for another website that screens potential tenants.
I've done it through Mysmartmove. Definitely my go to, you are able to see income insights which is unique on it's own. I've run over a dozen applications on there and the results always come back within 10 minutes. Can't say the same to other services like Cozy's background and credit check.
Ive used mysmartmove. Would recommend. Easy for the tenant to pay themselves and the report is emailed to you.
@Ronnie Hutchinson Thanks a ton!
@Jeff Brower Thank you!
MySmartMove is all I do. I like the nation wide eviction check and the fact that I don’t collect any money. Applicant pays directly. Of note; I only put forth one applicant at a time after I do a free preliminary screening checks of past landlords, employment, and open source criminal courts online. So, by the time the applicant pays the $40 fee, they should pass (unless they lied on their application).
We use Smartmove to screen all of our applications and have had great results so far
Thank you all for your input, much appreciated.
SmartMove is my Go to. Make THEM (potential tenant) pay the application fee so they have skin in the game.
@Kevin Lefeuvre I usually ask tenants to submit an application after the showing. My other landlord friends do the same but I can see why you'd take applications beforehand. For me, I'd like to meet the person in real life before picking them as tenants.
Have been meaning to try cozy screening for a while since I use it for rent collection but kept forgetting. Have been using smartmove for years now. But recently noticed that BP is not pushing smartmove like they used to. I clicked around the site and couldn’t find any official endorsement of it anywhere, let alone direct links. Now BP is pushing several other companies. What happened? @Mindy Jensen
I recently used EZLandlordForms.com for tenant screening. This is the first time I’ve ever screened tenants, so I don’t have much to compare it to but I thought it worked great. It also allowed me to easily upload the chosen tenant into the lease agreement I drafted on their website.
Cool, thx everyone!
@Max T. , Smartmove is still a good product, we just do not have a partnership with them.
Hi @Markum King !
It's great to hear (read) that you are screening your tenant prior to signing the lease! If you have any questions about SM, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Good luck to you :)
