Applicants that may not always be
telling the Truth
When you are screening applicants
for a rental property, you have them fill out an application, but how do
you know if what they say is correct or if it is untrue?
It may not always be easy to know
if an applicant is lying because of companies that make a living on fake
references like CareerExcuse.com. For as little as $5 your applicant can have
two trained professionals waiting for your call. For $100 per month, your
applicant will receive a fraudulent reference from a live leasing agent with a
real address and property management website. If that was not bad enough, a
forged, two-page employment verification can be obtained for $10.
In my business of Property Management in Orange County Ca. I am aware that Forged documents are also much

report, if the report is complete. Even though making calls to check references
may not be full proof, it is still a part of the process that should be followed.
The best way to get great Tenants though is to have multiple applicants to a
property to choose from, that way you can pick and choose, but if you only have
one applicant, be careful not to overlook some issues in order to fill the

There is no perfect way to screen
applicants and sometimes it just comes down to your gut. Mistakes can be made
no matter how hard you try to screen. Things happen, but doing your due diligence
will cut down on problems.
