Got Vacancy?  Choose your next, best tenant worry free!

Only a couple of months ago, the spread of the global pandemic, COVID-19, became evident.  As the scale of the pandemic has evolved, government reaction has included orders to “stay-at-home,” moratoriums on evictions, frozen rents, among other actions.  Job loss, illness and economic decline has left many renters with no ability to pay all or a portion of their rent and has emboldened the more unscrupulous renters to simply stop paying their rent without reason.

Rather than face the obligation of paying a growing debt of unpaid, deferred rent, many tenants have decided to consolidate living arrangements by moving in with friends and family, and many are breaking their leases to curtail future financial obligations.

As a result, many housing providers today are now experiencing vacancies.  Owners are uncertain about taking on a “new risk” by leasing a vacant unit to a renter who may, under an eviction moratorium, merely stop paying rent right after move-in.  Many owners are wondering: Should I rent or keep vacant?

Don’t make the mistake of choosing the wrong tenant during this global health crisis.  Help is on the way.  Learn what steps you can take to choose a new tenant with the utmost confidence and security.

During this important webinar, we will discuss:

  • What’s happening now? – Legislation and industry disruptions that could impact tenant screening.
  • “Do’s & Don’ts” – How to confidently and safely utilize tenant screening and background checks.
  • What Comes Next? – Changes to expect and industry trends that could impact you in the future.
  • Fraudulent Documents – Fraudulent documents occur in more than 50% of evictions; learn how to spot fraud “a mile away”.
  • Understanding what your credit, criminal and background check report is telling you.
  • COVID-19 Precautions – What extra steps should you be taking during this global pandemic.
  • Credit Reporting – How can you report on-time and late rental payments?
  • Credit Scores – What is a FICO or other credit score telling you?
  • Help is Here –  Tenant screening from “A to Z”.  What reports should you run?
  • and much, much more!
