We offer background checks to a wide range of professional services providers, including real estate and property management, finance and banking, technology, and more.
Why do real estate and property management companies need to run background checks?
Criminal record checks are mandatory as part of the professional certification process for real estate agents in many parts of Canada, including the Real Estate Council of Ontario for instance.
Additionally, because real estate agencies deal with large sums of money and sensitive client information, agencies must ensure they’re hiring reputable agents.
Property management companies can use background checks when screening potential tenants, so they can be confident they’re renting to responsible people who won’t miss payments or damage property.
What types of information should real estate companies be validating?
Real estate agencies should be validating:
Not all criminal records disqualify a candidate, but any charges of fraud or financial crime are relevant for real estate agencies.
A candidate’s employment history, including reasons for departure and length of employment, provides a snapshot of whether a candidate is hardworking, reliable, and committed.
Not only do education background checks tell you if candidates have the right credentials, but they also indicate whether candidates have accurate information on their applications.
A candidate’s financial status, credit rating, reported bankruptcies, collections, liens, and more can demonstrate whether they’re fiscally responsible.
Reference check verifications are a great way for you to find discrepancies in a candidate’s information and determine whether they are a reputable and credible person to add to your team.
Social media background
A social media background check will provide a deeper and more personal insight into who you are hiring to ensure you mitigate any risks and build a safe and healthy workplace culture.
What types of information should property management companies be validating?
Property management companies should be validating:
When screening potential applicants for property leasing and purchases, a criminal background can help you ensure your property is always in good hands.
Job history will confirm if a tenant has the steady income required to consistently make rent payments.
A tenant’s financial status, credit rating, reported bankruptcies, collections and liens will confirm if they’re fiscally responsible.
Reference checks from other landlords or employers can confirm if a tenant is responsible.
Social media background
A social media background check is a legal and safe way to examine a tenant’s online behaviour to identify red flags that typically aren’t found using a traditional background check.
