Tenant screening

It is very important to match the right person to the right home. That person will fit the criteria established and will have a good credit history, a reliable employment history with adequate income confirmed, a satisfactory rental history verification, will pass a criminal history inquiry, as well as an eviction search with the court system. We take the time with each new resident to explain the benefits and responsibilities of leasing a home from us to ensure your property is cared for and maintained. We also provide you with protection through the use of proper lease agreements, deposit forms, late notices, and other legal documents.

Tenant prospects may contact Bien Company LLC via our website, yard signs, and from numerous other sources such as Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, Hotpads and referral sources. Tenant prospects are tracked in specialized leasing software. We use AppFolio, a property management software, for our tenant screening process. All tenant prospects are pre-qualified to make sure the tenant needs match the rental homes prior to showings. Bien Company LLC uses an online rental application, and all applications must be completed through our website. The $25 application fee must be paid online at our website.
