Tenant Screening is a Must

Why take a risk and turn over the key to your property with a stranger? Would you take a chance on tenant problems like late rent payments, damage to your property and many other hassles that bad lessees create? I'm sure those are the last things in your mind when you decided to let out your property.

Finding a good tenant is a serious business. A thorough background check and financial screening should be conducted before closing a deal with a renter. With just a few clicks of the mouse, all these can be done in a breeze with no extra cost.

Criminal records are open for public viewing with just a name and an ID. However, you have to make sure that you ask for the real name of the person and the Identification Card is valid.

As for the employment and income screening, there are online websites that can help you check these things. Tenantify is one of them. They can do a thorough check of your would-be tenant's employment record, his current job and his capacity to pay the monthly rent. Landlords do not pay for this service; it's the tenants who pay for the report.

Having a knowledge of the person's criminal and financial background will help you decide if he is worth giving the key to your rental unit or he is someone who would just give you a lot of problems later on. Don't take any chances, do a tenant screening now.
