Do you conduct background checks on your potential tenants?
BGI is often called upon to locate former renters who failed to pay rent and were evicted. Once a judgement is entered, in an attempt to recover unpaid rent, the client request BGI locate the defendant and serve them with civil process. We start with a background check to locate their current address. In most instances we quickly find a long history of prior evictions. If the client had ran a pre-rental background check this could have been avoided.
The time, effort and cost from unpaid rent, legal fees and investigation costs could decrease dramatically by simply spending a small amount upfront on competent and comprehensive tenant screening
Remember, “Trust but verify.”
