Landlord2Landlord is helping Property Managers Cope with Loss of Service
August 26, 2006 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Tenant screening services have been discontinued for many property managers nationwide. In the wake of the much publicized data breach of Choicepoint and their $15 million dollar settlement, the FTC and the credit bureaus have forced many tenant-screening companies, to reprocess hundreds of thousands of clients. These companies are trying to figure out how to quickly qualify and inspect hundreds of thousands of clients because property managers' bottom line “cannot wait” to have their applicants screened. Industry averages for qualifying a person or company to access another’s credit info for rental decisions range from 2-3 man-hours while onsite inspections can cost up to $100 using independent inspectors.
Landlord2Landlord.com, screeners since 1987, has not been affected and is currently servicing the many clients who were “cut off”. Landlord2Landlord.com offers credit, eviction and criminal reports as well as rent recovery services. “While many companies were taking shortcuts in qualifying candidates, we were practicing due diligence. Although we lost many customers to cheaper prices, we knew that things would catch up on our competitors.” Ken Lemal, President of Landlord2landlord.com©. In times of great shake-ups in industry, the survivors are usually the ones who had the foresight to identify and prepare for change first. When asked what his company is doing to accommodate the new clients, Lemal confidently replied, “…were not doing too much differently. Our systems have been in place for sometime and our technology is the latest in reliability, deliverability and security. Our main objectives are to continue delivering superior service and expanding our user-friendly interface.” Landlord2landlord.com©,is accepting new clients with (100+ units) from other screening companies at half of the original membership price if they were recently "cut off" using another provider.
