Best screening services?

9 Replies

I am looking for a screening service that will not only do background/credit/evictions, but also job and reference checks from former landlords.  Most of these I am seeing are simply background checks with optional credit checks and such.  Any suggestions?

I use http://www.myrental.com/products

They have different prices depending on what you want.

I call landlords myself.  I prefer the one before the last landlord for a better reading.  I also call the job and try to speak with the people there.

I use myrental.com as well. 

I will have to look at the myrental.com

Thanks

What about the screening service Biggerpockets has in the resource tab? 

I will give it a try first.  The format seems very simple and based on this site I am sure I will like it.

Try http://www.rentprep.com/, i have not use it, but know a lot of people recommends it.

 That's just Credit with a little background check info thrown in for good measure, and requires your tenant to enter his own SSN.

For the small landlord I think you're better off doing it yourself. We have it as a service we offer to Property Managers but it's a whole call center and can get quite expensive pretty quickly.

I was recommended to mysmartmove.com and i havent used it yet but will with in the next month or so. Has anybody else used this site?
