In this webinar, we will discuss the best way to keep the balance while screening your residents. We will offer tips on how to keep the high risk applicants out of your property, while admitting qualified applicants. You certainly do not want to disqualify applicants simply because your screening criteria is too restrictive. This webinar is centered on different types of affordable housing requirements which must be observed, as well as optional screening criteria that should be considered. By reviewing your internal applicant selection process, you may be able to reduce the number of evictions all while increasing occupancy at your property. Here are just a few of the topics we will cover in this webinar:

  • The different types of credit reports and applicant screening;
  • Backgrounds - Sex offender, terrorist and drug screening;
  • What to consider when doing criminal screenings;
  • What to consider when doing rental history screening;
  • Applicant reasonable accommodations and
  • The Fair Credit Reporting Act
