Due Diligence Investigations

SearchFirst’s Enhanced Due Diligence Investigation Reports  provide a detailed background check on any entity or individual. Used by organizations globally to enhance and simplify the due diligence process and protect against  monetary and reputation damage, SeachFirst’s Enhanced Due Diligence Investigation Reports form part of a best practice, risk-based approach to due diligence. Our rapid turnaround and low costs contribute to a considerable saving in both time and money. Due diligence reporting and risk intelligence gathering is all prepared in-house, using our own research analysts. This ensures that we can produce consistent, high-quality, quick turnaround times, while still controlling costs and without the risk of leaking proprietary information.

Tenant Screening

Tenant screening minimizes the risk of renting to high-risk tenants who don’t pay rent, damage rental property, are involved in criminal activity, etc. These risk factors can affect everybody and it is a landlord’s or property managers responsibility to protect the rental community by doing what is reasonable in that endeavor. Nobody wants to be at risk because someone chooses not to obey rules, and has a negative impact on lifestyle.

Landlords and property managers want to know who’s getting the key to an expensive piece of real estate and they want to ensure that it’s going to be looked after. They want to make sure that the rent will be paid and that it’s on time. We believe in being faithful to our customers. This means using the highest standards with our screening practices.
