Choose the Best Renters
Choosing residents for profitable occupancy requires comprehensive screening technology that balances risk to end-of- lease cost and protects from fair housing liability. LeasingDesk Screening features a fifth-generation empirical scoring engine that analyzes an applicant’s credit, criminal, and rental history and delivers an easy-to-read result in just seconds. So right from the start, you can be confident that the best residents are approved, fairly and accurately.
The applicant screening process starts with a credit check, including a NSF check search. The best credit bureau for your area of the country is selected, and a complete credit verification is obtained. LeasingDesk works directly with Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion.
RealPage maintains the industry’s largest online criminal and sex offender database, which includes almost twice as much data as leading competitors. Each screen includes an exhaustive search of each and every jurisdiction available within the database. Our database is available instantaneously in more than 800 jurisdictions covering 47 states. Manual court searches are conducted in areas where electronic criminal data is not available, and the information is uploaded directly into your system.
“Follow Me” National Criminal Search
While most companies search only the information provided on the application, LeasingDesk also searches all name variations, aliases and addresses found on the applicant’s credit report against the entire national criminal database, in addition to the information provided by the applicant. This one-of-a-kind national “follow me” search includes state, county, and local records, as well as sex offender registries. The records are also filtered on gender matching to further reduce false positive results.
Screens through Government Databases
Every screen includes a terrorist and most wanted fugitive warrant search of 12 government databases including, the FBI, Interpol, the U.S. Customs Service, the Secret Service, and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).
LeasingDesk screening follows your company policies for criminal classification so it’s not left to the discretion of your site staff. The Criminal Classification feature automatically sorts criminal records into one or more of 17 different categories such as violent crimes, drug-related crimes, fraud crimes, victimless crimes and non-violent crimes, all according to your company policies.
Drive NOI with Potential Rent Limits
To further maximize revenue, the system upsells a unit or recommends a less expensive unit based on the applicant’s credit score and debt-to-income ratio.
