Credit Checks For Tenant Screening


Apartment Listing  

It is vital to check the credit history of the prospective tenant before allowing him to rent your property. A credit check will give you adequate information about the person’s financial status, his history and his ability to pay the rent on time. It will also help you ascertain whether there have been any cases of bankruptcies against his name.

A landlord has all rights to ask personal information about the tenant’s work status, his previous addresses, the number of people who would be staying with him and his credit history. Firstly, ask your tenant to fill a renter’s application form.

Next, use this information to contact the credit-reporting agency. If you are not able to do this yourself, you can always hire organizations, which offer you such services. They will give you all the necessary information instead of you having to run around the place. They will also give you the crucial support and guidance required while renting your property out.

You need not necessarily look out for a tenant who has outstanding credit history. You will very rarely find such cases. Instead, check out the history to understand the person’s economic status. Also, check out for previous evictions and get a good idea about why he/she was asked to evict at the first place. Make sure that the tenant does not have any delayed lease payment history.

Be absolutely sure that the person is not involved in any legal issues. Also, make sure that the person does not have any previous criminal activities registered under his name. You do not want to be a victim of your tenants’ illegal activates so be very careful. Take your time out to check different aspects before renting your property out.
