Background Check Companies

Use one in screen your tenants for criminal, credit, employment! I have listed 3 here for you to choose from. Fees do vary.
King Background Screening & TVS & ATS  IMPORTANT Note:
There is no accurate nationwide criminal search & if a Co. you are considering offers it, make them identify their sources. Also, Be careful of the eviction information. What you U get is an eviction that was collected upon in court. Most do not get that far & majority of "get outta here" evictions show up no where except by calling the previous landlords. If you find a gap in residences, dig further and suggest U call the previous landlords.
