An Easy Way to Make Your Tenants Pay Rent On Time

by Chris on August 30, 2010

Did You Know?

Tenant Verification Service is a Credit Reporting Agency where landlords can report tenant pay habits.

Reporting tenant pay habits benefits landlords and tenants.

Landlord benefit: Where tenant pay habits are reported on the 3rd day of each month to a Credit Reporting Agency, and a tenant is made aware of that via a Notice to Tenant form available from TVS,  rent payments are more likely to be made on time. Why?

Because the tenant is aware of the consequences of a tardy tenant history. 

Tenant benefit: Tenants benefit when rent payments are made on time because they can create a good tenant credit history for themselves.  This history entitles the tenant to a Certificate of Satisfactory Tenancy, available from TVS.  In many instances, tenants do not have a stellar credit report and tenancy is denied. A good payment history and the Certificate of Satisfactory Tenancy can open new doors and make renting easier. This is a tremendous benefit for good tenants who pay rent on time but have a poor credit history.

For more, TVS members can log into www.tenantverification.com,  go to Report Tenant Pay Habits which is directly under Contact Us in the top light blue bar. Click on the link and proceed to complete the report. Over 52,000 TVS/ATS members in Canada and the USA will then have access to the pay habit report.

The TVS/ATS database is searched each time a member submits a query for a credit report. If a record is found, it is provided  the same as a credit report

This is great! Thanks. TVS! BTW, a few weeks ago one of the applicants was very interested in my rental property. After filled-up the application form, he gave me the check for the background/credit check. I checked it on TVS and his credit was very poor and there was one bad record. For sure, I did not rent my property to him. However, about a week later, my bank told me his check was bounced back and ended with I had to pay the bank the fee.

My question is, should I report this to credit reporting agency in order to warn other landlords?

Thanks. Andy
