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!!
FAQs

The Rent Guarantee program includes:

– Guaranteed Rental income for up to 12 months or $60,000 per lease
– Damage protection from willful tenant damage up to $10,000 per lease
– Unlimited coverage of Legal Fees incurred during the eviction process
– Automatic Rent Collection via PAD
– Tenant Credit & Background Check

The program fee is 4.99% of the monthly rent, charged monthly.

We can deduct the fee when we process your monthly rent payments (optional) or we can charge your credit card on a monthly basis for the term of the lease. After the initial lease term the Rent Guarantee goes month-to-month and you can cancel by providing 30 days notice.

Since we collect the rent for you, we will know right away if the tenant hasn’t paid and we will take action to contact the tenant and collect the rent. If the tenant is unresponsive, we will continue to pay your rent for up to 12 months while working with our paralegal team to remove the delinquent tenant.

In the case of negligent or wilful property damage by the tenant, please notify us within the next business day and we will be reimbursed up to $10,000 of damages if the tenant refuses to pay.

To start the Rent Guarantee we need the following documents:

1. Credit Report for each tenant – we can help with this

2. Signed lease agreement by the tenant

3. Proof of income in the form of recent Paystubs, T4, Bank statement or Employment Letter

We also recommend that the landlord performs a Pre‐Inspection report, including images of the property detailing the condition of the unit prior to tenant move‐in; as well as proof of property and liability insurance

The good news is that we do not qualify tenants based solely on their credit score. To ensure affordability, we require that the rent cannot exceed 45% of tenant’s gross household-income.

Yes, we can guarantee new and mid-lease tenants. For existing tenants, we simply require confirmation that the tenant has made their past rent payments on time.
