Let Tenantify Do the Verifying: Always Free for the Landlord!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.

If you are a property owner who rents, one thing you know for sure is that getting and verifying quality references from your tenants is touch-and-go. No two forms for identifying work or income are the same, and they can be ambiguous, or even downright confusing. Helping relieve you of the research headaches, or even more importantly, the authenticity of such documents, Tenantify will do the work for you. The best part, if you're the landlord, they do it for free. Tenants are charged after the reports are returned.

The cost is $10 for Employment Verification, $10 for Income Verification, or $15 for the two. Reports have a one-business-day turnaround time.

Tenantify is meant to empower the landlord and help build trust between him/her and the renter. Though a credit check is common when it comes to renting, those provided by the larger credit bureaus (most commonly used) do not offer current information. With Tenantify, a landlord will know if a person trying to rent is currently employed, of if they  have a steady stream of income coming in.

Extreme care is taken to protect all personal information obtained. 

Tenantify: One day turnaround time. Always free for the landlord!

If you are a landlord, or know someone who is, this is news you're going to want to know and share. The peace of mind from such a service, for a property owner, can be immeasurable. 


You can learn more about  Tenantify by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

My husband and his brother own several rental properties, so I will make sure he knows about this!

Jeanine said...

Wow this is neat! We rent but I hope to in the future own and possibly have a rental property or two! This would be wonderful!

Sandee said...

Excellent idea. You hear so many war stories about people who rent. It's essential to get a good renter.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

MikiHope said...

I don't rent out any properties so this would not help me at all. Personally I am not sure if I would be willing to pay a landlord money to do a check on me--with a co-op which I am in the bank does it. How would I know if I could trust the owner? That he/she would not use sensitive information for nefarious purposes?

Aimee Fauci said...

Wow this is big.. I did not know about this and will most likely use for the future. Hopefully no time soon .. saying our tenant is satisfied and wants to stay.

Elephant's Child said...

An excellent initiative. That I am unlikely to ever need. Nice to hear it exists though.

Celebrity VIP Lounge said...

This is such a great idea. I would love to buy some properties and rent out. Amber N

Liz Mays said...

Any extra layer of assurance and security is more than welcome. This is a great service.

Checking on verification can be a pain, so this is a good idea for landlords.

Hope all's well in your abode, Rosey.

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle said...

This is a great service. I know someone who has rental properties, and verifying everything is such a hassle. I'll be letting him know about this.

Melissa Pezza said...

This sounds like a great resource for anyone in the rental industry. I have a realtor friend, and she's told me horror stories of background checks.

Jen B said...

This sounds like a wonderful service for both renters and landlords!

Rebecca Bryant said...

what a great service for both landlord and renter.

Paula Schuck said...

This definitely sounds useful for landlords. Background checks always sound like such a hassle. Thanks for sharing!

Pam said...

My dad had trouble with his rental properties for years. This would have made life so much easier.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Sounds like a great resource. Be nice to know these things

Heather @ Girl Gone Mom said...

Even with the best programs, renting can be tricky. My parents had some crazies over the years.

Mama to 5 said...

This is good to know. We thought about renting out our house and buying a bigger home.

mabi said...

Sound like a great service.

Maria Long said...

My mom owns a property she rents out 6 apartments. I will be sending this to her. thanks for sharing

Pat Hatt said...

A good way to keep get background on potential tenants indeed

Ruth Zankich said...

I am sharing this with a friend of mine who has several properties, thanks for posting!

Mama to 5 said...

Definitely comforting to know, I would love to rent out my home I just have been scared to do so.

Jacquelineand.... said...

Wish we'd known about this when my mother and stepfather had their rentals!

Milena said...

I wish this was around when we had tenants!

Lois Alter Mark said...

This is a great idea. Will have to keep it in mind for the future.

Janell said...

This sounds like a great service to help landlords save time and money. I know how important it is to make sure that you have reliable tenants.

Catherine Sargent said...

This sounds like a great idea. My mother in-law rented her house one time and it didn't go well. She could have used a service like this.

Vanessa said...

Sounds great. We rent but when we own a home and possibly have a rental property of our own this will come in handy.

Jessica said...

I have a close friend who owns rental properies. I will tell her about this.

Debra Rutt said...

Sounds like a good service for any landlord or anyone who is renting something. There are sites that do this for babysitters, why not tenants.

Jessica Harlow said...

This sounds like a great resource for landlords! I can't imagine how difficult it must be to get good renters. I'm so glad we bought a house last year...no more landlord/renter drama for us!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Jason wanted to rentals at one point. I put a no to that pretty quick. I just don't think I have what it takes to be a landlord!

Terri Ramsey Beavers said...

Thank you so much for sharing. I wish my landlord had of used this service before renting out to my neighbor. As it stands, both of us are unhappy over his mistake.

RANE said...

I wish this was available for everyone so we can get truthful verification from Tenants. My father is in the Business and so much people lie just to get a place they know they cant pay for

Emerald Lavender said...

This is a great service for people who need to verify information. If I ever invest in a rental property, I'll definitely keep this in mind!

Mama to 5 said...

Me too! Definitely sounds like an amazing resource!

Marcie W. said...

We debated possibly renting out our house and decided against it. It is great there are resources like this available.

celebbabylaundry said...

This sounds really amazing, I'll pass it no to those I know who could use this

Christie C said...

Wow, that's a seriously quick turnaround! Great to have such fast service too!

Amanda Ripsam said...

I think this is a great service I live in a two bedroom apartment and before the new owners took over they just let anyone move in. It would give comfort knowing everyone passed a background check.

Censie Sawyer said...

Looks like a great service for those that do this for a living.

AJ @ NutriFitMama said...

This looks like a great service, thanks for sharing.

debdenny said...

That is really neat resource. Handy and not expensive.

Sharon Ruggieri said...

Fantastic! We have some friends using a similar service and it comes in really handy

Lori Gunn said...

I like the idea because it is inexpensive and it gives a day of waiting to think over the tenants while waiting for the reply. Tenantify would have kept me from making a big rental mistake once or twice.

Michelle H said...

My sister told me about this service when she bought her first income property. It's been so simple for her to use and feel confident about it.

Heather Jones said...

This looks like a great tool! We own our home, but you never know what things might come along that might make us rent it out. Good to know about this.

Crystal said...

I watch a lot of HGTV so I'm pretty much a real estate expert (you can tell I'm kidding, right?). I would love an income property to offset the mortgage. It's a long-term goal, but I need to keep this service in mind for when we get there.

myshelomitashop said...

This is an excellent idea!
It's not familiar yet in my country but I am sure it will soon :)

Czjai Reyes-Ocampo said...

Sounds like a great service. Thanks for sharing!

Ashley @Irishred02 said...

I will share this with friends who rent their property. They had issues with former tenants

Anne - Mommy Has to Work said...

This would have been much better than paying a real estate agent to do this. But thankfully we no longer have our rental

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

We were scammed before trying to rent a place. Now, we are really gun shy. But I bet it is just as scary for those trying to rent to someone.

Christy Garrett said...

This is a great idea. I'll have to remember this site if I ever decide to rent out our house. An income property would be a great asset to have one of these days. I'm like Crystal, I love HGTV and have dreamed of flipping a house. Except, with my back and Fibromyalgia that dream is on permanent hold unless I have money flowing out my ears and can hire the right contractors to do the entire thing whole I supervise.

Sandy Cain said...

A very good idea! My mom rents out a room, and I know it's important for her to do background checks, but she is somewhat lax with that. Now I can do it for her!

Jen Schneider said...

This is a good idea. I don't have any tenants myself. :)

Dominique Goh said...

That's great for landlords to get external verification check on the renters. First time I am hearing of such a service around.

Christy H. said...

This is such a great site. We can use this with our tenants/

Ourfamilyworld said...

Landlords forget to do their verification and they are stuck after. This is so important and every landlord should do it

Chrystal Mahan said...

What a great service. I know quite a few people that could benefit from this. I will have to pass it along to them because I dont think they know about it.

Lesley said...

I am renting, I need to check this out. I know people who rent to others too.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I am too chicken to rent property! This sounds handy though.

Ann B said...

This would be a great way to be sure you are renting to a good tenant. I have friends that have had places destroyed by bad tenants.

Demetra @sweetsavant said...

My husband and I have long considered purchasing an income property. This would certainly be a big help to any landlord.

Janell said...

This is a great service. It will save people a lot of headaches.

Cheap Is The *New* Classy said...

This sounds like a major need for landowners. What a wonderful way to help build trust and ensure you are renting to good people.

Stephanie Pass said...

This is great! We are considering renting our home and moving closer to my husband's work. He's worried about verifying all that info, and this looks like it could be a great service.

Jocelyn McGaffic said...

This is what my landlord uses. Such a great service.

Kiwi said...

This is so great for landords out there. This is innovative and neccesary

Maddi'sMommy said...

This is awesome, we are just getting ready to rent out our first home and it's a scary process. House repairs can be costly so a good tennant is a must.

Camesha | Mama Motivator said...

What a cool service. We've talked about leasing our home at some point. This would really come in handy!

BrettBMartin said...

Need to tell my father in law about this. He has 2 properties with rentals and really needs help finding good tenants. He's had some doozies in recent years.

Kristi Maloney said...

What a great service! My sister-in-law is moving out of her apartment in April. I'm sure her land lord would love to know about this service. (He was having an open house today.)

Virginia Gudiel said...

Awesome! WIll recommend to my friend who is now getting ready to rent out to people.

Annie Stow said...

I could never be a landlord because I feel that all the laws protect the tenant! But this is a great service. My friend owns a couple of different properties, so this could be super helpful to her.
