The tenant evaluation service of the Quebec Landlords Association (APQ) makes it possible to evaluate the informations provided by tenant relative to his/her employment, current housing owner, not only on the payment level of the rents but also on the behaviour level and carry out the verification with available information at the Régie du logement, as well as the civil and criminal records. The Quebec Landlords Association (APQ) can also make a verification of the real owner of the building because in several cases, the name which is given to us is not the name of the real owner of the building but rather the one of a tenant's friend.

“We recommend to the owners to take the time to consider the whole of the evaluation of the tenant before making a decision. It would be hazardous to refuse or accept a candidate based on a partial checking. That could involve an error in the selection according to Martin Messier, President of the Quebec Lanlords Association (APQ) ".

The result of a 360º evaluation is an opportunity of discussion between the owner and tenant to regulate difficulties which could have been raised at the time of the verification, and can also help to find alternative solutions like the guarantee.
