Improved Tenant Application Process by Jodie Nuorala
Did you know prospective tenants can apply online at Gulf Pointe Properties?
In an effort to streamline the tenant application process, we now have the ability for applicants to fill out their rental application online. Using our secure Gulf Pointe Properties website on computer, smart phone or tablet, the prospective tenant simply clicks “Apply Now” and is taken to the online application.
*Since sensitive information is collected online, it’s important to know that all personal information is encrypted, ensuring the applicant’s data is safe and secure.
Once the application is submitted, we perform an in depth tenant screening which involves verifying credit worthiness and performing a background check.
Each credit and background check includes:
A full credit report with credit score. This report includes Income and Assets, Past Due Amounts, Credit Score – including the factors affecting the score, Summary of Accounts and a breakdown of Accounts (Late payments 30 days late, 60 days late, 90 days late: Payment history).
A complete background check and identity verification. This report checks the FBI’s Most Wanted List, National Sex Offender Registry, Terrorist Watch List and criminal records by state.
At this point, we provide you (the owner) with a leasing recommendation based on the data we have gathered. Once a decision is made, the applicant is then notified.
With these tools, we have the ability to save everyone time and hassle, allowing us to spend more time focusing on finding you the RIGHT tenant!
