Tenants can be good and they can be bad. Unfortunately, they are more often bad than not. Your best friend is a landlord credit report, without which you have left yourself open to all kinds of trouble. Property takes a lot out of you to locate, secure, improve, and maintain. It is not so easy to find good property. So you must protect your investment, because it is much more than a financial investment. It is a work of passion.
Maybe it is unfair to judge a person by his financial history, but if a potential tenant has a great financial history it makes the choice easier. A good history of finances and everything else being equal, means you want this tenant over the one with splotches on his record. After all, there must be rewards for the person who is able to keep their financial record clean, however he does it.
It is not simple trying to determine who you should rent to, so you should gather as much information as you can. Of course, interviewing the potential tenant more than once helps. From two interviews you will have a better impression of their character than one, because they might have had a bad day. A second interview will help balance those possibilities.
A tenant screening report will easily equip a landlord with one additional set of data from which to make a decision about who to rent their apartment or house to. Screening for landlords is an indispensable tool. So get started with the process by visiting Tenant Screening Services LLC.
