Screening Potential Tenants

tenant_informationLandlords want to use background check services to find a good tenant, so they can easily sleep at night knowing that the rent will get paid and the property won't be damaged. But if you find a person who turns out to be a bad tenant, landlords are left wondering about the investment and its state while getting a lot of calls from angry neighbors.

The problem is that any potential tenant can act like they are the best tenant while they are in the first walk through. But if landlords want to make sure that they find a person that will be the best renter, it is important to do background check services on every potential tenant thoroughly, before letting them sign a lease.

There are two choices to find a person that will become the new tenant for the property available for renting. Landlords can hire a firm that will do the work for them or find out about the person themselves so they can save money. Screening a potential tenant will not cost a lot and is not that difficult. Just follow the right steps:

  • Request an Application
  • Run Background Check Services
  • Contact Previous Landlords
  • Interview the Tenant

Questions To Previous Landlords

  • Does the potential tenant have any outstanding debt?
  • Do they pay rent late?
  • Are there any major damages caused by the potential tenant?
  • Are there major problems dealing with the potential tenant?
  • Ask if they would let this tenant rent an apartment again in the future.
