Advertising can make us feel like we need just about anything.
That “miracle” exercise program.
That revolutionary new egg peeler.
All those things you circled in the toy catalogue when you were ten so Grandma would know exactly what to get you for Christmas (or maybe that was just me…).
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard some about OnTAP’s background screening system already. We utilize a completely new process in which the tenant pulls and pays for their own credit report. Then they’re able to look it over before sending it to you. You as the landlord don’t pay a dime, and all the legal issues that could arise from an incorrect background check are avoided.
But do you really need to screen your tenants? I mean, maybe you’ve gotten along fine for years with nothing more than a handshake. Screening just adds one more step to the process.
Isn’t this just another attempt to talk you into something you really don’t need?
Not quite. Innovative Software Solutions, the company that created OnTAP, has been in the background screening industry for twenty years. Unfortunately, we’ve seen some less-than-great consequences of not screening your tenants.
There’s the stress, for one. Going by your instincts alone may have worked out so far, but it can’t last forever. Sooner or later someone will seem fine in person but turn out to be a major partier once they’re renting your apartment. Then you’ve got headaches and high blood pressure caused by people in the surrounding apartments complaining, not to mention the property damage.
Then there’s the cost. Evicting rowdy tenants can get expensive fast – even before you’ve repaired your apartment.
All in all, it’s seems best to avoid the symptoms of a Bad Screening Tenant Decision. This plague has claimed many landlords – but with the help of OnTAP, you will be invincible!
