Yes, all Hosts and permanent residents over 18 must complete a Criminal Background Check. Hosts must also complete an interview
All Hosts and permanent residents in the home over 18 years of age are required to complete a Criminal Background Check (CBC). You will be directed to submit your details to our third party company to run the check during the application process. CBCs cost $20 per check, with the cost deducted from your first payment that totals over $200. A new CBC must be obtained every 3 years for hosts of college students. A new CBC must be obtained every 2 years for hosts of students in high school or younger.
All hosts will also be interviewed. We will arrange a time for the interview in which all the household members are present. We will also want to view your home and the student's room during the interview.
