Tenant Screening 

We know that you want the best tenants possible, so we perform comprehensive tenant screenings for you. Our tenant screenings include a criminal background check, full credit check, employment and income verification, resident history eviction screening, reference checks, and previous landlord verification. As the landlord, you are always involved in the final tenant selection so that you feel comfortable with who you’re renting to. 


Tenant Payment and Rent Collection

Like any rental property owner, you’re in it to make money which means you need timely payment and rent collection. We provide tenant payment and rent collection services to make that happen. Our convenient payment options allows tenants to pay even if it’s the weekend or after hours so they have no excuse to not pay their rent on time. Tenants have the option of making payments by mail-in, drop-off, or online payments. We’re aggressive in collecting your rent on time and we’ll apply any applicable late fees for you when necessary. 


Eviction Services

Unfortunately, even the most careful tenant screening can’t prevent the occasional necessity of evicting a tenant. At Clearstone Property Management, we understand that evictions tend be tedious and time consuming. In the rental world time really is money, so we have a streamlined, automated system in place to ensure that progress is made quickly if an eviction becomes necessary. Don’t worry, part of our residential expertise is that we know the laws and codes involved in evictions and make sure that they are followed while we work to minimize the time lost to this process. Additionally, you are always involved in the important decisions so that any problems or shifts in circumstance can be accounted for on a case-by-case basis. 


Maintenance Services

No matter how great your tenants are, maintenance is one of the unavoidable parts of owning rental property. It’s important to remember that prompt attention to maintenance requests can lower your turnover rate, increase tenant satisfaction, and help turn tenants into lifetime customers. Additionally, there are many property codes and laws that impact maintenance when you own rental property. That means you really should have a residential expert on your side to make sure you are in compliance

When you work with Clearstone Property Management, our residential experts become your residential experts. We do the hard work so that you don’t have to. Contact us today to learn more.


Get Great Tenants!

As a rental property owner, you’re literally handing over your property keys to someone who is essentially a stranger. Because of this, selecting the right tenants is critical to protecting your Los Angeles area rental property investment. However, one of the greatest difficulties of owning rental property is finding great tenants. That’s why comprehensive tenant screening is such an invaluable service provided by property management companies in and around L.A.

Comprehensive Tenant Screening

Choosing to screen your Los Angeles area tenants will help you find renters who will pay their rent in full and on time, take care of your property, and (hopefully) become long term renters. Here are three things that tenant screening should accomplish:

Check for Red Flags in Their Credit History

You can learn a lot about a prospective tenant by running a full credit check. Do they consistently pay their bills? Do they have outstanding debt to former landlords? Do they have a history of bankruptcy or foreclosure? In addition to looking for answers to these three questions, you can also look at their debt-to-income ratio to determine if they are likely to have trouble paying the rent.

Check for Red Flags in Their Criminal History

Under California law, you can’t discriminate against a rental applicant based solely on them having a criminal record. This is considered arbitrary discrimination and could cause you legal difficulties. However, certain types of offenses are red flags that should be taken into consideration. Any past criminal history that shows that there may be a threat to the health and safety of your property or the other tenants can be considered. You can look for a history of property damage, theft, sex offenses, or violence.

Check Their Residence History

You probably don’t want to rent to an applicant who has a history of recent or frequent evictions. Unfortunately, it indicates that you will likely end up needing to evict them yourself some day. Taking the time to check their residence history, along with calling references and former landlords can help you determine if the applicant could be a good or bad tenant. The sad truth is, choosing the right tenants can be a time consuming task. That’s why many Los Angeles area landlords choose to use a property management company to aid them in screening and selecting great tenants.
