MICHIGAN & ILLINOIS RENTAL APPLICANT BACKGROUND CHECKS 

Our tenant/purchaser background investigation is fast, accurate, and affordably priced. Call for our latest pricing. This is an important investment that could prevent you from paying or losing thousands of dollars in unpaid rents and damaged premises due to renting to or selling to a high-risk tenant or purchaser.

Working with a licensed private investigator with over 20 years of experience, Access Legal Care has developed a program designed to assist real estate and rental agents and who lease residential or commercial properties. There are numerous risks involved in land contracts leases of valuable properties.

Some tenants deliberately or mistakenly provide inaccurate information, which makes it difficult or impossible for rental agents and homeowners to later collect damages from breached contracts. Our Background Check program helps mitigate those risks, by confirming the accuracy of applicant information, including 

  • Verification of social security number and date of birth
  • Driver’s license record
  • Criminal conviction history (Michigan or Illinois only), which includes the Sexual Offender Registry and OTIS (call for price for out-of-state histories).
  • Complete background investigation: reveals bankruptcies, liens, and judgments. This information is especially important to let you know if the potential tenant or homeowner has defaulted on other contracts or otherwise has not paid their bills.

There are no guarantees as to what an investigation will reveal, or what information may be missing from the report. The sources and databases are excellent and accurate, but none are foolproof or fully complete. What we promise is a diligent effort on your behalf.

This service is fast, accurate, and affordably priced per name searched. This is an important investment that could prevent you from paying or losing thousands of dollars in unpaid rents and damaged premises. 

Please contact us for more information regarding our background check services.
