BC Landlords Landlords Are Helpless Against Bad Tenants No Now With Tenant Credit Checks

Are Landlords Helpless Against Bad Tenants? Not Anymore! This Deal Can’t Be Beat!

Landlords across British Columbia are becoming aware of the need to protect ourselves against bad tenants.

We’ve seen too many cases of small business landlords not getting paid rent for six months or seeing their rental property turned into a crack shack.

With an increasing pool of good tenants out there, make sure you take the necessary steps to find them (and shut out the professional tenants who want to rent from you).

How Can I Make Sure I Rent To Good Tenants?

Good tenant screening is the key.

This includes a tenant credit check which will go beyond a tenant telling you a ‘story’ and show you the real numbers and verify if they are telling you the truth.

BC Landlords Can Now Do Premium Credit Checks For Only $12 Per Check (with no hidden or annual fees!)

Many landlords don’t make tenant credit checks part of their screening process.


Many of the credit check companies out there are confusing in how they bill you.

It’s nearly impossible to know how much it will cost you with all the ‘additional fees’ they charge.

And they want an annual fee for any type discount, if they offer any at all. 

Small landlords are on a budget and paying $25 or $30 or $40 for a tenant credit is simply out of reach for most landlords.

The Problem With Asking a Friend To Do A Tenant Credit Check For You

We live in an increasingly legalistic society. 

This means it important small landlords know the rules and follow them.

Some landlords will ask a friend who is a real estate agent, works at a bank, sells mortgages or works at a car dealership to check their tenants for them.

This can lead to big problems for you and your friend and if reported to Equifax will get your friend (and their company) cut off from Equifax services.

It can also lead to a Privacy Complaint against you with the provincial government.

Getting a friend or relative to do a tenant credit check for you is simply not worth the risk when you now have safe, legal, and affordable options!

Now BC landlords can do safe, legal credit checks for an incredibly low price per check

We have partnered with GARDA a world leader in background screening.

How Long Does It Take Me To Get Set Up For Tenant Credit Checks With GARDA?

No time at all.

GARDA doesn’t require you to get ‘set up’ taking days, or weeks or months before you can do a tenant credit check.

You get a form your tenants sign and you then can get your tenant credit check done. This means:

1. No hassles

2. No delays

3. No need for copies of your passport, drivers license, etc.

You can start doing checks immediately.

What Does A GARDA Tenant Credit Check Show Me?

A GARDA credit check provides you with some of the most important information you need to make an educated decision on choosing tenants.

You get to view into the financial past and present of your potential tenant to make sure they are the right tenants for you!
