SingleKey is providing Ontario landlord with the most needed insurance, from screening tenant to tenant moved in. I have been looking for this kind of service for years, now I finally find it.

I've been extremely pleased with the great detail in the credit reports. It really helps me to see everything that I need to know to choose my tenants. And Viler at Singlekey has been helpful both times that I've had to reach out to Singlekey. They are constantly working on improving their already superior system and reports. This company is changing the game! Great job Singlekey! Keep up the great work!

We used SingleKey for a prospective tenant reference check. Very impressed with the incredibly fast turn-around (within 20 minutes) and the detailed, informative report. Love the instant chat feature for questions. Thank you.

I used to use a different company, who were decent but when they quit using Equifax and switched exclusively to Transunion, I went looking for a different company to use. A fellow landlord recommended Singlekey to me and was I ever blown away by how much more detailed they were!! I've now done 5 reports through them and have been very pleased with the results!! The best part is that I can fill in the prospective tenant's name, phone number and email address, pay for the report and it emails the application to the tenant to fill out! This is sooooo much easier than having to get tenants to fill out paper applications and then re-enter all their info into a database before being able to get a report! When I had some issues one time, I used the chat feature and actually got a live person who was able to help me with no trouble!! I highly recommend this company!!
