Hassle free Renting with clear documentation
It’s well known by experienced landlords that bad tenants cause even worse problems. Virtually all of the problems a landlord faces with his/her tenants can be eliminated through a good screening process. If you don’t have consistent steps you follow each time you screen tenants, then keep reading. It’s important to stay consistent and treat all potential renters the same so that you’re not violating any fair housing laws. At the very least, you’ll want to make sure you have every tenant submit a rental application and authorize a credit report and criminal history check.
A Quick Recap: Five Stages to a Good Screening Process
Stage 1: First Contact
The prospective tenant calls you for more information about the property and the lease. Ask some pre-screening questions to make sure this prospective tenant isn’t going to waste your time.
Stage 2: The Showing
The prospective tenant has passed stage 1. Now, you’ve scheduled to show the apartment and will meet the prospective tenant(s) face-to-face for the first time. Watch out for these red flags.
Stage 3: The Application
Your prospective tenant is still interested and so are you. Have him or her fill out an application that includes references from prior landlords and employers. Run a credit report and criminal check.
Stage 4: Approval Process
This tenant seems like a good candidate. Accept him or her and gently decline all other applicants. Until you have a signed lease, though, you’re not done screening.
Stage 5: Lease Signing
You and your prospective tenant(s) are ready to sign a lease. Go through the lease with him or her carefully and make sure all the rules are completely understood. It’s not too late to rip up the lease if things aren’t going well, even at this point.
