4 Tips when screening tenant applicants

6 months ago

Whenever you are looking to switch up your renters, you want to make sure that you understand exactly what screening your tenants mean. Landlords are generally the ones that are taking a huge risk whenever they allow someone to live in their home without really and truly knowing the person. Well – I can tell you for sure that there are a few things that you want to make sure that you are doing before you sign a lease.

Firstly, you always want to make sure that you keep it legal. If you do not have a lawyer, make sure that you get one, that way you can make sure that everything that goes into the lease or even what a qualified tenant looks like. Also, it is a great way to prove that you are not discriminating against anyone.

Next, make sure that you check with the previous landlords – if they treated those landlords badly, odds are they are going to do the same to you.  Do not over read the credit report. While we know there might be some mistakes, do not read too much into it. Finally, do not settle for just anyone, find the right tenant for you.
