Pittsburgh Tenant Screening

Maybe you thought placing a tenant would be as easy as choosing the application you like best.
Unfortunately, that’s not the way it works.
Good tenant screening requires an understanding of fair housing laws and lots of experience identifying what makes a tenant the right tenant

The Right Tenant Leads to a Profitable Investment Experience for Pittsburgh Owners

Good tenants pay rent on time. They see maintaining your investment property as a partnership that requires their participation. They understand and respect the lease agreement, and they don’t hesitate to communicate. We have a full-scale screening process in place to find these highly qualified residents.

Pittsburgh Rental Property Marketing

Before we can screen and place tenants, we have to let them know your property is available to rent. That’s where our strategic marketing plans make a difference. We cast a wide net – ensuring the tenant options for your home include renters who are responsible, reliable, and ready to move in.

Our marketing and advertising strategies are designed to attract high-quality residents who are looking for long-term rental properties. The Arbors Management website attracts a lot of visitors, and your listing will be showcased with our available properties.
We also use hundreds of other rental sites that are popular with residents.

While online advertising is often the most effective way to identify potential tenants, we don’t stop there. Our leasing team also utilizes our extensive professional network, which puts us in touch with real estate agents and businesses who are relocating clients looking for rental properties. 


Tenant Screening Criteria

Arbors Management takes a comprehensive, detail-oriented approach to screening tenants. We know what matters most when we’re exploring an applicant’s background and deciding whether they meet our strict criteria for what makes a high performing tenant.

Fairness and consistency is part of our process. We have a documented and established set of criteria that we use on every application to decide whether that tenant will be approved or denied. It’s based on the data we collect during the screening process.

That data includes:

  • Credit history
  • Criminal screenings
  • Past evictions
  • Income verification
  • Landlord reference checks

Effective Lease Agreements

The right lease agreement protects you and your property. It also protects your tenants. 

We have been leasing Pittsburgh homes since 1982 at Arbors Management. We’ve put together thousands of lease agreements each year, and we know how to cover all the necessary bases, ensuring your lease is legally compliant and enforceable in the state of Pennsylvania.

The lease is where your tenants will turn when they have a question. We make sure they understand it completely.

Our procedures include the collection of move-in funds, signing the lease agreement, and discussing expectations and responsibilities with your new residents. 

This gets our full attention because we understand the importance of establishing a respectful and professional tenant relationship from day one.
