Full Tenant Screening
Tenant screening may not be a guarantee of future tenant behavior, but it sure can give you some risk mitigation for reassurance. I take tenant screening very seriously. Let me show you a glimpse of my recipe to screen tenants worthy of your property:
Online Tenant Application
Once prospective tenants submit the rental application online, the results are usually ready in a few hours. Each applicant is screened for the following:
Criminal Background Check
- Most wanted databases
- National Sex Offender Registry
- Terrorist Watch List
- Criminal records by state
- US Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control (OFAC)
- Social Security Number Verification
- Full Credit Report
- Credit Score
- Eviction Report
5 Year Rental History Verification
We verify the applicants good standing with previous landlords in last 5 years. We also authenticate the addresses in 5 year rental history with addresses in credit report.
Every reference provided by the applicant is verified to further determine eligibility of applicant.
The employer is contacted to verify time employed, income, and likelihood of continued employment.
System’s Recommendation (Transunion)
The tenant screening system automatically provides a recommendation to accept or reject applicant(s) based on the results of the application.
Equal Credit Opportunity Act Compliant
Denied rental applicants are notified in writing of the reasons for denial along with the contact information for the agencies that provided criminal background and credit checks, this ensures your property is managed with fairness and in compliance with the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.

Advertising Your Rental Property
Marketing Your Property for Rent
As soon as we know when your property will be available, we start the marketing process. Our process includes learning all about your property by measuring the rooms, taking photographs and writing scripts for highlight videos about your property. These videos will be available on our website for prospective tenants to see the property if they are unable to visit the property. Properties from our website are syndicated out to many popular websites such as Zillow, Realtor.com, Hotpads.com.
Tenant Screening & Coordination
Tenant Screening and Background Checks
Prospective tenants will be screened to determine if they have the ability to pay, proof of employment or adequate funds to pay the rent. Past landlord verification and criminal background checks are also conducted as part of the screening process and then all information is compiled to look at the applicant in a weighted process. Leasing information from past landlords will be verified whenever possible.
We coordinate with the tenant anytime property needs to be shown for business purposes.
Maintenance & Repairs
We hire licensed and insured people to clean, paint or make repairs when necessary and answer phone call from tenant 24/7 and handle emergencies. Any work needed will be done by a licensed contractor. MATT N & A REALTY & MANAGEMENT has vetted all the contractors normally needed for repairs at your property and have proof of general liability and well as worker’s compensation insurance for any contractor used. We are licensed property managers and do not perform any maintenance. We leave that to the experts. Tenant safety and satisfaction are a priority.
Leasing Services and Renewals
We provide leasing services for any Owner than wants to self-manage his/her property and keep track of when those leases would need to be renewed. We also offer. As part of our property management services where the owner isn’t self-managing, we evaluate the market 60 days prior to lease renewal and adjust the rent price based on market conditions and owner desires. Move in and Move out walk through inspections are documented on video.
Rent Collection & Bill Pay
We report and collect the rent and provide a conduit between tenant and owner for problem resolution whenever possible. We pay all bills associated with the property at the Owner’s direction.
Rent collection services are provided to make it easy for a tenant to pay his/her rent. Options for online payments are available for 24/7 access. Tenants can also drop their payments off at our office.
Regular property inspections are performed by licensed inspectors twice a year to determine if any problems exist. Early detection of water leaks, HVAC, or pest control problems can save hundreds of dollars. Photographs document the condition at the time of the inspection. In addition, walk through evaluations are accomplished at lease renewal. Note: Property Managers are not allowed to perform “inspections” unless licensed as a Property Inspector, so any observations at the property and more of a property management evaluation which requires no license.
Eviction Process & Late Payments
Rent payments are due on the 1st of each month and considered late thereafter. We allow 2 days of grace before charging the late fee and beginning the eviction process. On the 4th of the month, the Ex-Official Constable is hired to serve the 5-day pay or quit notice on each tenant in default. The response from tenant determines what happens next. If the tenant pays, all is well, no further action needed. If tenant doesn’t pay, manager files for summary eviction with the court and obtains order for locking out tenant.
