Portland Tenant Screening Services

Consistent and Compliant with All Fair Housing Laws

Screening tenants in Portland has become more complex than ever. It’s easy to make a complicated mistake, which is why smart investors use the services of a Portland property management company. At Performance Properties, we have the resources, tools, and expertise that can lead you to a responsible, well-qualified tenant.

Understanding the Benefits of a Good Tenant

It matters who you place in your property. 

A good tenant will pay rent on time without reminders or prompting. 

Well-qualified tenants will also take care of your home, helping us to maintain it and protect its condition. There won’t be a lot of wear and tear at the end of the lease term because they’ve cared about their home while they were living in it.

Another benefit to great tenants is that they respect the lease agreement. They don’t try to get away with anything, and they work hard to be respectful partners in the rental process.


Screening Portland Rental Applicants

We know which red flags to look for when we’re screening tenants. Our process includes an evaluation of financial health, prior rental references, and past evictions. We want to know if former landlords would be willing to rent to these tenants again.

The process we use to identify and screen tenants is consistent, fair, and rigorous. Our process has resulted in a track record we’re proud of at Performance Properties. We rarely have to evict any of the tenants we place, and we have a good relationship with our residents.

Protecting You from Legal Mistakes in the Screening Process

If you’re not aware of the new first-come, first-served system in the Portland rental market, don’t try to screen and place your own tenants. We understand the legal requirements that are present in city, state, and federal laws. We will ensure our process and your investment is compliant.

There are recent limits on application and screening fees, income requirements, and a system of low-barrier screening criteria. It can be difficult to navigate these rules. That’s why you hire experts. We follow the law without sacrificing our tested and true screening process.

We've had Performance Properties manage our Portland triplex for more than a decade! Much has changed in Portland in this time. But PPI's helpful efforts, especially by Sonja Snedeker, their chief accountant, over the years, is something we can count on! The list of things Sonja has helped us with is incredible--from pulling year-end tax documents, explaining monthly charges, going the extra mile with property insurance records! We appreciate her work and Zack Zahm's efforts, too. We've had the opportunity to switch property managers, but we did not. We can't imagine having the same good and careful care with any other company!

Having lived in a Performance Properties managed home for the last 5 years I can say, quite honestly that they have been incredibly responsive to any and all requests for maintenance or repair. Not only was any work completed quickly and professionally, The vendors they used were very helpful, polite and easy to deal with. You really should not have any problems if you rent a property that they control.
