The RealChek Advantage!

RealCheck Members Account Screenshot

RealChek is the premier nationwide company that landlords and property managers turn to for all their rental housing needs. For the hands-on landlords, RealChek features scored credit reports, statewide and national eviction reports, statewide and national criminal reports, etc. With this information, you are able to screen your applicants objectively. For the newer landlords or the seasoned landlords who are interested in protecting their assets from Fair Housing/Discrimination claims, RealChek has a Qualification Report which NO OTHER service or company can offer. RealChek will personally contact your applicant’s references and verify their renting/living history, cross-reference all information within our data base and then provide you with a numerical score from 0 to 10 with 10 being the best. You simply establish the threshold score that you will accept for your rental unit and rent to the applicant who qualifies. Because this is an objective score with the rating given by a disinterested third-party (RealChek), any claim of Fair Housing/Discrimination should be dismissed. RealChek has assisted landlords and property managers using the Qualification Report when there has been a complaint made that someone was discriminated against.

RealChek has all your legally required forms available for purchase. Our NCR forms give you the perfect paper trail and comply with your state laws. Many forms available on-line or in stores DO NOT comply with state laws. Some forms even admit this but require you to add the language. Why purchase a form that doesn’t comply and requires you to add the language? RealChek, also, provides technical assistance you may need in filling in your forms. RealChek is ready to assist you and this is included in your membership investment.

Truly, one call to one company "RealChek" for all your rental housing needs.
