Tenant Screening

Background screening services from Commissionaires provide you with the peace of mind that you are renting to a trustworthy, reliable individual when selecting a tenant. Our services include:

  • CREDIT CHECKS Commissionaires partners with a major credit bureau in Canada to provide a credit risk assessment of your prospective tenant.
  • CRIMINAL RECORD CHECKS A criminal record check (also referred to as police checks, police certificates, CPICs, criminal background checks and police clearances) can be performed using either name or date of birth or by digital fingerprinting. For a certified record check, a fingerprint submission is required. For cases in which a name and date of birth check matches another individual, a fingerprint submission will be required to verify the person’s identity.
  • REFERENCE CHECKS 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.
