Evictions can occur due to a variety of reasons and are sometimes unavoidable. The most common reason for an eviction is failure to pay rent or other violations made of the lease terms. Hemlane can help you prevent evictions by finding qualified new tenants and assist you with the eviction process should you ever need to do so.
How does Hemlane help prevent evictions?
Hemlane provides a comprehensive background and credit screening with recommendations on prospective tenants to help you avoid evictions. We can also help you understand an applicant's credit score and how to work with applicants who might not have the highest credit score.
Our inclusive screening report includes eviction, credit, and criminal reports for your applicant. The report is a soft pull on their credit and will not affect their credit score. For more information on our screening report and how to request one within Hemlane, please view our articles, "How much does tenant screening cost and what does it include?" and "How do I request tenant screening (a credit and background check)?".
How do I know my state's laws?
Our state law resource center includes eviction information and is a great reference to guide you through your specific state laws. We also recommend seeking out legal advice as they can assist you with any questions you have and provide the most up to date eviction laws for your state.

How do I report my tenant's late rent payments to the credit bureaus?
Hemlane does not currently have the ability to report evictions or delinquent payments through our system but we hope to have a feature like this in the future. In the meantime, here are some resources for sites that do offer this service:
Rental Verification can help your tenants to report their credit to the credit bureaus. In this option, your tenant would manage the process and pay for this service in order to build their credit. To look more into their services and pricing, please click the link here.
