How We Screen Your Rental Applicants

We work hard to find the right tenant for your investment

Columbia Tenant Screening

Securing a qualified tenant is essential for a successful rental experience. By implementing effective advertising strategies, thorough screening processes, and clear communication, you can find a tenant who is reliable, responsible, and respectful of your property. Remember, taking the time to secure a qualified tenant upfront will save you from potential headaches and ensure a positive and profitable rental experience. Here are steps Oracle takes to ensure a qualified lease is secured:

1. Advertise Effectively

Craft a compelling and detailed rental listing that highlights the unique features of your property. Utilize online platforms, social media, and local advertising channels to reach a wider audience of potential tenants. Owners can choose to list in the MLS for more exposure.

2. Screen Applicants Thoroughly

Our screening process includes screening for credit history, employment status, income verification, and past rental references. This will help identify reliable and responsible tenants.

3. Conduct Interviews

Once we have shortlisted potential tenants, we conduct thorough interviews to get to know their rental situation better.

4. Verify References

We take the time to contact previous landlords and personal references provided by the applicants. This will give us valuable insights into their behavior, reliability, and level of responsibility as tenants prior to approving or declining.

5. Set Clear Expectations

Before signing the lease agreement, we communicate expectations clearly to the potential tenant. Discuss rules, regulations, and any specific terms or conditions regarding the property. This will help ensure that both parties are on the same page.

6. Use a Lease Agreement

We do not make up agreements but use state forms for all rental agreements. Each county is different which requires different leases for tenants. We do not have all in one leases. Leases clearly identify aspects of the tenancy, including rent amount, due date, security deposit, maintenance responsibilities, and any additional terms or conditions. The tenant will carefully review and sign the agreement to establish a legally binding agreement.

7. Collect a Security Deposit

We collect a security deposit from the tenant before they move in. This will serve as financial protection against any potential damages or unpaid rent during their tenancy.
