I am getting a lot of inquiries from out of state on my prescreening.

What is the best way to verify information for someone who is moving from out of state?

Thank you for your time. --73.120.xx.xxx

6x6 - it might help if you listed what you are verifying with your local applicants that you are unable verify with your OOS applicants.

For me, I don't really do anything different. Sometimes I can't find online court records for where they're moving from, so in that case I hope that the reports available through the credit/eviction/background checks here on this site pick up any problems. --98.174.xxx.xxx

Don't take them in most cases. Not enough time on the local job.Many scams in this area.

Some types of work are more likely to have real transfers (military, govt, doctors, some industries- colleges. Maybe some college students.) If you are in an area with few of these type incoming workers/jobs, be extra careful of out of town applications.

Generally though, you should have better luck with govt, health, and educational workers as they don't get laid off nearly so much. Look for longer terms employed, like 1 year plus. Avoid types of jobs that have high turnover (retail clerks, gas station, convenience store workers, fast food workers. Not to discriminate, BUT those type jobs have high turnover and are also not "essential", so there is a higher chance that these tenants will lose a job and then you may not get rent.

Ask LL's on here if there state has online court records for you to review for free. You can then do some homework --172.58.xx.xxx

I get a lot of those too. I tell them to apply once there are here in Florida and I can meet them and they can see the unit.

Thank you all for the replies.

razorback_tim, mainly court records and addresses. I have not quite figured out yet how to find things such as this out of state.

Plenty, Good idea. I could do that as needed.

Richard, good points.

J, not a bad idea either but I guess it depends on how soon they arrive but then again I don't want to hold the unit forever. --73.120.xx.xxx

Regarding court records and address, Google is your friend.

Do a google search for court records in the city and county they are moving from. If they are available online you will generally find them.

If by addresses, you mean confirming the owner of the address they are moving from, these can usually be found online as well. These are usually by county. If you find the main county government page for that county you can usually get to them from there.

I have rented to several people who moved from out of state. I have one that rented the unit sight unseen, relying solely on photos I posted, that has been with me for over 10 years. I have another that had her sister look at the property on her behalf prior to applying. She's been with me for 18 months currently. Both are excellent tenants. It can be done. --98.174.xxx.xxx

Saw on the news last night that you can carry without a permit and it looks like people are escaping to your state. If they can work at home and dial into their big corporate job, that's good. Just make sure they are not leaches running for cover. --108.24.xx.xx
