Tenant Screening Services

Proudly Serving The Vancouver and Clark County Regional Area

Tenant Screening Services

At Zenith Properties, we treat your home as our own. We screen and evaluate every prospective tenant based on their employment, credit, criminal background, and rental history. Our tenant screening services are extensive and comply with all federal, state, and local housing laws. Our attention to detail and extensive screening process is what sets us apart from our competitors.

Tenant Screening Process

Finding reliable and qualified tenants is one of the hardest parts of being a landlord. You don’t want to deal with late rent or property damage as these will just hurt your finances. At Zenith, we only allow highly qualified tenants in the properties we manage.

Each day we screen phone calls and walk-ins of people who may be prospective tenants. If someone is qualified based on our stringent screening criteria, we send their application to a specialized screening company. Once a qualified applicant has provided a non-refundable deposit, we’ll remove the marketing and listings.

Our screening process includes:

  • Credit check
  • Criminal background check
  • Employment and income verification
  • Rental history references
  • Eviction history

If a tenant doesn’t meet our screening criteria, we don’t rent to them. It’s as simple as that. We only want the most responsible tenants in your home. That way, you can enjoy peace of mind without having to worry about problems like missed payments or property damage.
