How​ ​to​ ​protect​ ​yourself​ ​from​ ​fraudulent​ ​tenants?


Many times we hear property owners complaining that the tenant does not pay their rent every first of the month, that he has left the house unfit, that he has animals even if this is against the owner’s rules or even that he left without giving any news. Avoid these situations with the ACCESS IDentité pre-rental service tailored to YOUR needs.


Knowing that according to the annual report of the Régie du logement, that all complaints combined, the average time to obtain a first hearing was 4.6 months in 2013-2014, you do not have as much time to lose. In addition, recourse to the court generates costs that you could avoid by making a pre-lease.


ACCESS IDentité offers you the possibility to avoid several hassles by using the pre-rental service. Before renting your home to someone, check with us what you would like to know about the tenant. We offer the following services:

  • Credit investigation
  • Criminal record checks
  • Checks at the Régie du logement
  • References from previous owners
  • Employment confirmation
  • Checking the damage caused by animals

The rate varies between $ 59 and $ 99 depending on your needs for the pre-rental service. By performing these checks, you avoid renting to a dishonest tenant who could cost you much more than our service. Plus, our online and remote service saves you time. A full report is sent to you as a result of the pre-lease survey to recommend or not the candidate. Contact us at 418-380-0891 or by email at [email protected] for Quebec and 450-910-1701 at Terrebonne or email at [email protected] for more information on this service.
