Rental Protection Agency (RPA) announced their latest alias trace technology for background checks and tenant screening. The new screening service allows landlords to accurately verify tenants through advanced alias matching algorithms that identify possible name changes, fake names, and married/divorced names. This change brings a higher standard to online background checks as it provides similar results a private investigator would take weeks to find. RPA offers resources to assist landlords in making informed decisions about their tenants and utilizes the latest technology to provide more accurate data to landlords and apartment complexes anywhere in the U.S. Screening potential tenants is a commonly overlooked process by smaller landlords and ends up being one of the riskiest decisions for rental properties. One bad tenant can cost landlords thousands of dollars in lost rent, legal fees and stress.
