Property Risk Assessment – How it Works

1. Assessment Form

When you find a rental property and want to verify its authenticity, complete your risk assessement form before finalizing the agreement or making any payments. This proactive step ensures you move forward with confidence. To begin, answer the quesions in the property risk assessment questionnaire below.

2. Risk Assessment

Upon receiving your request, we’ll collect necessary information from you and begin our assessment. We may request additional details during the process to thoroughly determine the risk. Typically, this review is completed within 24 hours.

3. Risk Report

You will receive a risk report from Secureprop detailing the fraud risk associated with the rental property.

The report includes recommendations, advice, and practical guidance, helping you make a well-informed decision. This report is confidential and provided exclusively to the renter.
