Choosing the right tenant is one the most important decisions you can make for your property. Tenant screening is a critical first step in ensuring that you find trustworthy, reliable, and quality tenants to fill your units.
This small up-front investment is more than a formality; it will help you avoid problems and hassles down the road. It will allow you to find tenants who will likely maintain the condition of your property, who will pay rent in a timely fashion, and be good neighbors. Red flags such as previous evictions or criminal troubles will be revealed.
Tenant screening also helps protect your legal liability by providing you with tangible data that can inform decisionmaking when choosing which applicants to offer a lease to. If you turn down an applicant based on their poor credit, eviction, or criminal history, you will be liability from legal action if they assert that you rejected their application unfairly. You will also help protect other tenants living on the property by ensuring that their new neighbor has been through a proper vetting process.
You can never be 100% sure that a tenant is risk-free, but proper screening helps reduce your risks substantially.
