22 Voices for 2022: Combating the Growing Risks and Sophistication of Renter Identity Fraud
Fraudulent renter applications are skyrocketing — and at the worst possible time. You’re moving more to self-service virtual leasing, where you’re less likely to see your applicants in person. At the same time, it’s more difficult than ever to remove a resident once they’ve signed a lease.
Bottom line: It’s more important than ever to snuff out renter fraud as early as possible. Getting it wrong at the start could cost you later. But, unfortunately, it’s also easier than ever for applicants to use stolen or fake identities to apply for a lease — and then never pay rent, creating losses measuring $10,000 or more, in some cases.
Join us for a live, interactive webcast on June 1 at 1:00 p.m. CT, hosted by Jay Parsons (RealPage® VP and Head of Economics and Industry Principals) and joined by industry experts Lisa Moore (Training Director at GoldOller Real Estate Investments) and Ed Tonarelli (RealPage Industry Principal for Screening).
We’ll dive into how to quickly and seamlessly enhance your screening and identity verification processes to minimize risk without slowing down the leasing process:
- Why traditional background checks fail to catch identify fraud
- How today’s technology quickly verifies an applicant’s identification without slowing down the leasing process
- How to build an end-to-end screening and identity verification process to reduce skips, evictions and bad debt – boosting NOI
