Excellent service from this company. The reports came quickly and a representative followed up to make sure I had all of the information that I was looking for. I highly recommend Singlekey’s background check.

Really good experience in using the service. Obtaining the credit history was painless and even got the reference at the same time!

I used Single key for a background check and it has helped me find higher quality, more financially stable tenants. I have been using Single Key's rent guarantee and automatic rent collection for almost a year now too. The tenants like it because they never have to worry about forgetting to pay the rent and as a landlord, it's really worth it because I never need to worry about nonpayment of rent. Humans can forget but Single Key does not! Peace of mind has a price. I haven't made a claim with them, my hope is that I never need to, but if I do, they will honor their rent guarantee program.

Thank you for your great service. I experienced some problems with getting through but they were at my end. Your service people were great in assisting me with my difficulty. This is a great and necessary service for landlords in Ontario or any where. I have just got rid of a nightmare tenant who was a brother of a "friend" . Don't ever accept a tenant without a tenant check. A Single Key tenant check is A1 excellent. Thank you so much.


We have offices in Toronto, ON and Vancouver, BC. We serve all of Canada including Quebec.
We only charge one-time fee per tenant check. No monthly subscription or services fees. You can pay yourself, or request the tenant to pay.
– Name, Address, Date of Birth, and SIN or Driver’s License, as well as consent to pull a credit report
– Don’t have tenant info? No problem, you can invite tenants via email and we send them a form to collect their info and consent

The credit inquiry will appear on the applicant’s credit file, however it will not have a significant impact on their credit score, since this is not a credit application.

The Background Check is a real-time public document search of over 200,000 databases looking for criminal records, court decisions, past evictions, negative press, social media profiles, public biographies, past employment and more.
