The event will be held September 29, 1-5 p.m., at the Sequoyah Country Club, Oakland, CA. Led by an influential panel of California lobbyists and real estate attorneys, the discussion will include:

Key Strategies for Effective Renter Screening

 Background screening is arguably the most important part of a housing provider’s responsibility, but poor practices and new laws make learning about your applicants more difficult. Join us for a presentation on “Demystifying Discrepancies” at the EBRHA 360 Trade Expo (September 29, 1-5 PM), and learn how to safely and confidently use background checks while navigating upcoming legislation.

Your commitment to effective screening strategies and attention to detail will be well worth it when you find the right renter for your property. You will increase your net operating income (NOI), decrease future resident problems, and maximize your property’s potential.

Topic areas include:

  • Rental Application Best Practices
  • Red Flag Ruling
  • Credit Criteria & Questions to Consider
  • Criminal Background Best Practices
  • Laws and Restrictions Impacting Resident Screening
  • And More
