Why is tenant screening so important to your success as a landlord or property manager? Essentially, tenants can make or break your business. Selecting the wrong tenant could mean damage to your property or the tenant skipping out on rent. A good tenant, however, makes your job easier and protects your investment. They consistently pay rent on time and care for your property. And hopefully, they’re a long term tenant, so you don’t need to worry about vacancies for years to come.
Importance Of A Credit Report
Looking at a tenant credit report will give you a good idea about their financial stability. Applicants with irregularities in their credit history are more likely to be a financial risk, while those who pay bills on time are more likely to be stable renters. By looking at their current debt and financial obligations, you can determine whether they’ll have enough to comfortably cover the rent at your property. A tenant credit report will also provide you with their overall credit score, which is a good reflection of their overall risk and ability to meet financial responsibilities.
A background check provides you with three key points of reference: credit history, eviction history, and employment history. The evictions history searches a nationwide database to see if your applicant has ever been evicted. Renters who have never been evicted represent less risk than those who have. Employment history verifies whether or not the renter is employed and can be used to determine the validity of the information they’ve provided on the application. Screening for these three things is the best way to make an informed decision when selecting a tenant.
