Resident Screening

It’s more than just a credit report

Resident Screening RentSpree Training Resources

Today, screening applicants means more than running a retail credit report. For example, such a report won’t provide you with eviction filings and judgments. Spend a little extra and learn more about the person about to move into your rental property. Get a report package that provides data about eviction history and retail credit information. Additional services may include a search of NSF checks, or criminal history.

Our easy to use system requires no additional cost to CAA Members, incorporates the application and screening process in one simple step and you can get started in as little as 2 minutes!

CAA has partnered with RentSpree to provide you with a state-of-the-art tenant screening service.  By using our resident screening you can:

  • Confirm that you know who you are renting to with our Tenant Verification process that asks the prospective tenant specific questions about their background that only they will know
  • Provides easy-to-read credit reports.  Along with the Credit History report, you will have the option to also include the Eviction History and National Criminal Background check.  You can choose one, two or all three reports.

Make Resident Screening Simple

There is no site inspection required to get started and you can start screening your first tenants in as little as 2 minutes.

You can select which reports you would like to receive from the following:

All of the information provided in the reports is extremely comprehensive and always comes from a secure source to ensure validity.

Getting Started

You only need to register once with RentSpree to start your application and screening processes.  Once you have registered, to screen a new tenant, all you need is the applicant’s email address.  Simply enter the email address and the applicant will automatically receive an email invitation to complete the application process.

Tenants will then be directed to an online rental application and guided through the screening process.  The entire process takes each tenant about 15 minutes.  Once the screening is complete, reports all are pulled instantaneously and you will receive access to the application package.

In addition, RentSpree provides you with a host of useful screening features:

      1. A special link to the application that you can share with applicants
      2. A custom flyer that you can use to screen tenants during showings
      3. The ability for applicants to upload supplemental documents (pay stubs and more)

As part of your CAA member benefits, you will also receive access to premium screening features at no cost (a $120/year value).  These features include ID verification of all applicants and the ability for you to request your applicant attach any additional information you require; i.e. bank statements, paycheck stubs, etc.  Just use the code “CAAPro1YR” on your RentSpree dashboard to access these features.
