E-verify& small Landlords
self

Posted on 04/24/2014 8:14:47 PM PDT by PizzaDriver

As a very small time Landlord { I own just 1 rental property }; I'd like to be able to use the Fed's "e-verify system" before leasing to a new tenant.

"E-verify" could save Me from LEASING to a "student" that intends to split B4 the end of the Lease, or to OVER-STAY & make ME part of the problem.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: everify; landlord
Once the HONEST landlords get access to E-Verify, the Slumlords will have a new set of PROBLEMS!

Good luck getting access to that system if you’re not a Democrat donor of at least $2,500 or more a year...haven’t heard of them allowing landords to use it for tenant checks. E-Verify wouldn’t tell you if they have criminal history, prior evictions, or a horrible credit history anyway...lol

You assume something from this ultracorrupt government
of the Tyrant and his criminals will be accurate?

What has been so far?

E-verify is more for employers.

Use intelius.com, or your state has a free database of arrest records within that state.

Also, don't accept Section 8 housing.

My sister once lived with a guy whose background I thought was questionable. My parents had an investigative agency do a background search on him; turned up four pages of past criminal convictions, a terrified ex-wife and an ex-girlfriend whose children had been horribly abused. The last explained why my nephew was having nightmares.

Unfortunately, the report did not come soon enough, as he framed her for assault, she was arrested, and he ransacked her house and stole all her jewelry.

To this day the stupid b**** insists the guy was a nice man but misunderstood.

You might want to look into a person’s credit ratings, and also see about having an account with one of the above investigative agencies. You only need some things and not the really broad stuff, like from any ex-spouses.

Don’t be surprised if the DOJ Civil Rights Gestapo target you for “discrimination on the basis of national origin”.

So agree about Section 8 housing people.

There are several databases where you can get a ton of info on people. Neighbor took over his mom’s house when she went in a nursing home and rents it out. For just a few look ups it’s really inexpensive. He also does a search for person’s name and it’s scary as to how much info is out there.

One of the problems he has had though is not necessarily the person who signs the lease but some of the people who have visited his tenants. Being a landlord is not as easy as it once was.

E-Verify was designed to be used by employers and even if you obtain access it isn’t going to tell you the kinds of things you need to know.

Neighbor also runs a credit check on prospective tenants. Their agreeing to allow him to obtain this information, for which they pay the fee, is part of the paperwork which they complete if they are interested in leasing.

You may want to check your local laws to make sure you are in compliance with your search for information. May end up saving you legal fees down the road.

Using E-Verify to check out a prospective tenent by a small, honest landlord is probably a violation of the “Fair Housing” act. Especially as interpreted by this Just-Us Dept.

Better is first, last, cleaning deposits; co-signed by parents (26 now), demand they procure renter’s insurance. Second visit from LE is breach of lease. Write a hard contract not a generic rental agreement.

Best advice.

Also, don't accept Section 8 housing.

It is illegal to discriminate based on any LEGAL source of income, of which Section 8 subsidies are one. Your best bet is to insist upon a minimum credit score to be considered as a candidate for tenancy, and you have to hold ALL candidates to the same standard.

Do a credit check and read #10.
