Very legit. Very professional. Very Canadian! I had a couple of issues at the beginning, but they were addressed quite quickly and properly. They are a good match to the business of landlording. Have recommended to others in the field.

SingleKey was easy for me as a Landlord to use, and was great for my applicants as they did not have to worry about providing their details directly to me. The cost is totally reasonable and I intend to use this for all my future tenant screening.
