Last year I became a first-time landlord. I tried the traditional means of tenant screening: credit report, criminal history and eviction record. All came clean, but I still felt uneasy. 

The problem is: traditional tenant screening only reveals someone's past, but not his/her present. I wanted to know whether my tenant has a job, has sufficient income, or at least has a bank account to write check off. Without this information, I had to take a chance.

With the experience, I founded Tenantify (https://tenantify.com). We securely verifies tenant's bank account and deliver the most recent statement to landlord. Landlord should confirms a regular employment-based income before renting out.  

Check it out!

If you followed all the traditional screening methods, why didn't you verify employment by calling the HR dept. of his employer, have the tenant provide copies of his check stubs, or have him bring in his last bank statement?  Sounds like you didn't fully screen the tenant at all.

1. the bankstatement provided by anyone other than the tenant is illegal
2. just pick up the phone and call the employer listed on the application
3. why am I paying someone else to do this?

Not used any of them yet. I insist personal verification also. You can contact their previous neighbors and talk with him about their behavior, did they bother you by partying a lot and different other things.
