Tenant Screening Protects Your Property

A positive and profitable rental experience begins with the well-qualified tenant that we place. Our renters understand the expectations of our lease agreement and the responsibilities that come with renting a home. 

With a standard set of qualifying criteria, we have put together a documented screening process that is fair to applicants, consistent, and rigorous. Every application is evaluated with the same criteria, ensuring all fair housing laws are followed. 

Our screening process will focus on income and credit standards, as well as rental history and background checks. The best tenants are long-term renters with a record of positive landlord relationships and stable financials.   

Aborn Properties screens over 200 prospective tenants each year, using this process:

  • Completed tenant application is accepted
  • Tenant credit checks are completed
  • Eviction check for prior unlawful detainers
  • Tenant income verification with pay stubs and tax forms
  • Landlord references and interviews

The well-qualified tenants we place pay rent on time, take care of the home, and communicate openly with us. We see higher retention rates and more positive tenant relationships.

Transparent Rental Property Accounting

Property management technology has changed a lot, and we’ve made the necessary investments to ensure our systems are efficient, effective, and able to keep costs down. 

There are new challenges for Los Altos rental property owners, and we know you may feel overwhelmed by the new laws, restrictions, and requirements when it comes to investments like yours. 

Our experience allows us to follow those laws and adopt best practices while protecting your property and your financial footing. 

Lease agreements are legally compliant and detailed. Security deposits are lawfully collected, held, and returned. 

When it comes to accounting, you can expect accurate, detailed statements and reports in real time – whenever you need them. Follow what’s been collected and what’s been spent. Look for deposits and prepare yourself for tax time with our easily downloaded or printed 1099 forms.  

We’ll pay your expenses, keep a reserve fund for emergency repairs, and ensure you get copies of all invoices and bills.

It’s part of the high-quality, technology-enabled property management service we provide.

Aborn has been really great to work with. I used them to manage my rental for the last 7 years or so and they have been consistently helpful and very competent at tending to the things that inevitably go wrong with houses. Perhaps best of all, they found wonderful tenants that took great care of the place.
