As the most populous state in the country, California is home to nearly 40 million residents. With many thriving cities, gorgeous beaches, and the center of the film and television industry, it continues to grow. With such a large population, it’s crucial that property managers and multi-family housing apartments prioritize their leasing safety and verification methods. Unfortunately, rental fraud has become a growing problem, with nearly 97% of management companies reporting that they’ve experienced fraud. Rental fraud can cost landlords a great deal of time, money, and damages to their assets. On average, it can cost anywhere between $5,000-$10,000 per incident of fraud. That’s why taking preventative measures and being proactive is extremely worthwhile. At CheckpointID, we provide an online ID verification software to verify prospective residents in real-time, and within seconds, tell you if the ID passes or fails. This allows leasing agents to have peace of mind during the tour, knowing that they’re helping a verified guest. Our online ID verification is highly beneficial for several reasons.
Preventing Rental Fraud with ID Verification in California
At CheckpointID, our mission is to provide the multi-family housing industry with solutions to prevent rental fraud and encourage a safer, more accurate, and objective leasing process. With our software, you can verify IDs before tours and catch fraud before it begins. This helps to save companies time and money, as traditional screening companies wait until after prospects have applied to verify their IDs. At this point, companies will have already performed background checks, which can still pass if they’ve used someone else’s ID. Our user-friendly ID verification system provides many benefits for property managers in California:
- Standardized and modernized ID policy
- Fair housing compliance
- Improved tour safety
- Intercept fraudulent IDs
- Rental Fraud reduction
- Deterrent Signage
- Unlimited Verification scans
- Ensures prospects privacy
- Protect prospects IDs
How it Works
Using CheckpointID, you can scan Domestic & International IDs, including passports, driver’s licenses, and beyond. It is a simple to use, high-tech verification system that allows you to verify IDs in seconds. CheckpointID instantly matches thousands of lines of ID code against our proprietary library of unknown DMV database formats, searching for inaccuracies. Adding this simple step to your touring process can save your business time and money in the long run. In addition to preventing rental fraud, it also provides aggregate consumer data, tour data, and insights at your fingertips that can be useful for your business.
