It is bad advice to judge a book by it’s cover. It is recommended to have a proper program for scrutinizing the background of potential tenants to allow you to make an educated decision.
If you choose, the cost of an applicant background check can be passed along to the applicant.
Alliance 2020 provides private landlords the tools to make informed decisions, from application and consent forms to screening packages and products through our SureRent 2020 program. The good news is Alliance 2020 will assist you in getting understandable results.
Under the law, whether you have one prospect or several, you have the right to evaluate the following:
A SureRent 2020 report, from Alliance 2020, provides information in all of these areas. This report is generated from a trusted source and is based on the name you submit which is searched in concert with other identifiers such as date of birth and Social Security Number (SSN). Once the information is provided to you, you can use it to make an objective evaluation of whether you want the prospect as a tenant.
When you establish an individual landlord/roommate screening account with Alliance 2020, you have access to two powerful screening reports to assist you in selecting a tenant or roommate. If one of these packages doesn’t meet your needs, Alliance 2020 can design a package just for you! Your reports are fully compliant with state and federal law, are securely stored online and are available to you 24 hours a day.
You have two options to sign up for SureRent 2020. You can sign up online, completing your application for service with an electronic signature, or you can download a form to print, fill out and fax or mail to Alliance 2020.
All of our SureRent landlords must comply with the “due diligence” process by submitting an application for services. This process is designed to ensure that you are a legitimate landlord with a rental unit and that you will safeguard private, personal information. If we cannot establish your identity we will not be able to provide you with service.
The first step in the process is to view Alliance 2020’s Service Agreement. This can viewed and signed online with an electronic signature or you may print a copy of the form, complete it and fax it to 425-227-9246.
We will request the following items from you as part of our due diligence process:
If Alliance 2020 is unable to verify that you own the property listed on the application, we may call or e-mail to request a copy of the property deed or other proof of ownership of the residential unit you are renting/leasing.
There is a one time fee of $49.95 which will be charged to the credit card provided on your online application.
We go through multiple steps to prove your identity and establish your legitimate need for screening services. As a result, it usually takes about 8 business hours to set up your account.
If approved, through the due diligence process, you will be sent an e-mail with your username and password to our website. You can login to view your background reports on your tenants. Instructions for using our website will be sent to your e-mail address.
