Resident Screening

Whether you have a rental home or multiple apartment communities, it’s important to screen all your applicants.

As a CAA member, you qualify for discounted resident screening from our preferred provider, Credit Bureau Associates (CBA).

It’s money well-spent when you consider the hundreds — even thousands of dollars — you could shell out evicting a troublesome resident.

Odds are, the resident you may have to evict later has a history of non-payment or nuisance. Through proper screening, find out his or her background before entering into a rental contract you might regret.

It’s more than just a credit report

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.
