With the housing implosion, more and more people in the Cincinnati area are turning to rental properties to get reestablished and back on their feet. But how well do you know the potential renter in front of you from the application they have completed or the lease they just signed?
Guardian Testing Services, the Cincinnati area’s leading firm for comprehensive investigative and laboratory testing services, is helping local landlords protect themselves against potential damage or liability risks by offering affordable tenant background checks starting under $40.
“Landlords aren’t doing effective background checks on their tenants and we’ve seen a tremendous increase in rents not being paid, excessive property damage and eviction proceedings lasting several months and costing the landlords up to $10,000 in costs and repairs,” commented Joe Vroman, founder of Guardian Testing Services. “We offer affordable tenant background check services that can give landlords the peace of mind that they secured the best tenant possible for their property.”
Guardian Testing Services (guardiantesting.com) offers comprehensive tenant background screening services starting at only $39.95 which include criminal records, sex offender registry records, credit reports, national eviction registry checks and even past landlord reference checks. Most of the time, landlords can pass the expense for the background check on to their tenants as part of the application fee and actually have no out of pocket expense.
“Even if a landlord pays for the background check out of their own pocket, it’s really a small price to pay to protect themselves against lost rent and damages,” Vroman said. “In these tough economic times, landlords really need to protect themselves by having all the information available to make a smart tenant decision.”
