Being a landlord can be a risky venture. I found this out myself a few years ago when I rented a room to a former friend. This is what a man named Songhua also discovered when he became a first time landlord. Most landlords check a credit report, but that doesn't give the whole picture, and bank statements proving you have enough income for rent can be faked. Songhua knew there had to be a better way to check out prospective tenants and protect himself as a landlord. Thus Tenantify was born.
Tenantify is a third-party website that verifies employment and uses a secured bank account API to deliver the landlord a authenticated bank statement that is void of any sensitive personal information. This allows the landlord to be sure they are not being lied to by potential tenants, and alliviates some of the risk of renting. Tenantify is easy to use, and is free for landlords, with a small cost for renters. Tenantify's goal is to reduce friction in the housing market and build trust between landlord and tenant. If you are a landlord, you really should pay a visit to their site.
