Here’s how it works

Invite applicant

Invite the rental applicant to complete an international credit check.

Complete application

The applicant will be guided through the rental application to complete it. They'll also verify their personal details securely through Nova Credit.

Get report

Once the application is complete, receive your Tenant Screening Report within minutes!

Can I screen a tenant from outside of Canada with SingleKey?

Absolutely! By sourcing Nova Credit data, landlords using SingleKey can now confidently assess the suitability of international applicants as tenants.

How long does it take to
get my international credit check?

Just like our local Tenant Screening Reports, you can expect to receive your international credit check within minutes!

Do I need consent from international applicants to run a report on them?

Yes, your tenant will need to be aware of and provide consent to run an international credit check on them.

What's in the report

Credit report by Equifax

Every Tenant Report includes a full credit report powered by Equifax. This includes the credit score and a full credit report—one of the best indicators of a tenant’s financial status and payment history.

Social media check/scan

Get a thorough analysis of your tenant’s public social media accounts. SingleKey doesn’t access or collect any information published on private profiles.

Public documents scan

We look through over 200,000 databases from 240+ countries for criminal records, court decisions, negative press, public biographies, past employment, past addresses and more.

Income & employment verification

In addition to employment info from Equifax, tenants are asked to provide employment references and to upload proof of income (e.g. recent pay stubs) when completing our online rental application.
