Make it Part of Your Rental Agreement – Use A Professional Tenant Background Screening Company to Check Credit On Tenants

Genesis Background Screening Tenant Background Screening  Whether you are new to being a landlord or an experienced property manager, you know tenant background screening is an essential tool to include in your leasing process. It’s equally important to use a professional background screening company to protect your property, to comply with the law, to determine credit worthiness and reduce risk.
For your convenience, Genesis Background Screening Services has search packages designed to help you make your leasing decisions with accurate information. Or, if you prefer, we can customize a package just for you.

And, you can build the cost of the background check credit report into your application fee to reduce your out-of-pocket expense when you have tenant turnover.

We highly recommend the GenApp™ for gathering a prospective tenant’s information and processing their background check for ease of use and the paperless features. For our commercial leasing business partners, we are excited to offer a direct integration with many popular Property Management Software Solutions (PMS), including YARDI, AMSI, and Tenant File.
