LandLord Verification™ Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

  • The manual process is time-consuming, cumbersome, and difficult, and until now, the burden has been on the property manager or landlord. They often receive multiple verification requests for the same tenant, and tenants have to request the same information every time they fill out a rental application. Fill out the form once at LandLord Verification™ where the process is automated and the information is stored. It’s fastand efficient for everyone involved. (The space between “fast” “and” is missing currently.)

  • Similar to a credit report, we collect up to seven years of accumulated tenant/landlord referrals. This saves you time by not having to track down old records.
