By using Secureprop Verify, both renters and landlords can significantly reduce the risk of falling prey to such fraudulent activities.

At Secureprop, we focus on authenticating the identity of the landlord or agent, a crucial step since a large portion of online rental scams involve fictitious landlords or non-existent properties. Our verification process rigorously checks and confirms the legitimacy of the landlords, effectively reducing the chances for fraudsters to use fake or stolen identities. This thorough verification of landlords and their properties is key to safeguarding renters against deceptive practices and ensuring the integrity of the rental transaction.

In your email, it’s helpful to include basic details about the rental property and any specific concerns or needs you might have.

As a best practice, we recommend that renters inform their prospective landlords about their intention to use Secureprop’s verification process. This communication is key to establishing transparency and obtaining the landlord’s consent. Once the landlord agrees, renters can either introduce us to their landlord via email or provide us with the landlord’s name, email, and property address. This approach facilitates a smooth initiation of the verification process and ensures all parties are aligned.

While most landlords appreciate the added security that comes with our verification and escrow services, we understand that some may prefer not to participate. In such cases, renters still have options for ensuring their security. We encourage you to contact Secureprop for a property risk assessment, a service that can be carried out independently of landlord involvement. This assessment offers valuable insights and protection, helping you make informed decisions about your rental choice.
