I got Police Verification & Criminal background check done and I got to know the tenant I was onboarding had an eviction case in the past!
Shrikant Sharma, Delhi
I am glad I got the tenant verfication done before finalising the rent agreement. This Tenant I was onboarding had an eviction case due to non payment of rent for more than 6 months.
The ID verification & court check service is super helpful and easy

I had to rent a floor and I was worried about the stranger who would live in my house. So I got this verfication done and it helped me finalise on the tenant. It's a great screening method.

Why is Verification of Tenants necessary?
In the current times, it is not as difficult to select a Tenant for your Property as it used to be
earlier. This is especially valid in Tier 1 Cities where the gap between Supply
and Demand, especially for 2 BHK Properties is rapidly decreasing. At the same time, it has
become important for the Landlords to conduct thorough Tenant Screening and Police
Verification process. It is of paramount importance to check the background of the Tenants in
order to ensure safety and avoid any unwanted troubles that may arise in the near future.
Law makes it mandatory for conducting the Police Verification of Tenants without fail.
