There are several factors to consider in getting a good pre-rental screening result.

First, make sure that the data provided by your tenant is accurate. For example, forgetting to mention the apartment number can lengthen the processing time of a rental reference. Similarly, the applicant’s work address is an important element for our teams to be able to confirm employment independently and reliably.

Secondly, your prospective tenant should provide you with as much information as possible. For example, although it is not mandatory, the social insurance number greatly increases your chances of obtaining the applicant’s credit report. The same goes for his or her addresses, which are used to find his or her file. Therefore, ask them to provide you with a previous address even if you do not wish to obtain a reference for it.

Finally, systematically check the identity of your candidate to avoid impostors. A driver’s license is usually sufficient.
