Westside Rentals tenant screening department provides a convenient, fast and secure tenant screening service for landlords, property managers, real estate agents and brokers. Get results the same day on applications submitted before 8pm seven days a week!
We are the experts!
We highly recommend you fully screen your tenants. Checking not only their credit but also checking their background such as Criminal Records, Eviction Records, Fraud Records, and Sex Offender records.
Nationwide Bundle provides you with the most valuable information available of your potential tenant. Product includes Nationwide Criminal Records, Nationwide Eviction Records, Nationwide Fraud Records, and Nationwide Sex Offender Records along with their TransUnion Credit Report/ Scorecard.
Nationwide Bundle total cost is $30.00 – Renting to someone who has a history of being evicted can cost you up to $4,000 or more! Better to be safe than sorry! Everyday a tenant remains in default and in your rental unit, you lose money. With the average apartment rent being over $1,200.00 per month, you are losing $40.00 each and every day that the non-performing tenant remains in your unit.
