Landlords need to know if they are renting to a trustworthy, reliable tenant. Background screening services from Commissionaires provide you with the peace of mind you need when selecting a tenant. Our services include:
Criminal record checks
Criminal record checks can be done using either name/date of birth (also referred to as police checks, police certificates, CRC's, criminal background checks and police clearances) or by digital fingerprinting. Name and date of birth CRC checks are submitted through a direct connection to our police partner and are processed in 24-48 hour digital fingerprint record checks submitted through a direct connection to the RCMP, will generate a response in 72 hours, if no convictions are found.
Commissionaires partners with a major credit bureau in Canada to provide a credit risk assessment of your prospective tenant.
Commissionaires perform thousands of reference checks every year on behalf of internal and external clients. We use a proven methodology with protocols for degrees of separation of the reference and the tenant. The quantity of references and contact frequency is flexible to meet your needs.
