Apartment Listing  

If you are planning to rent your house out, having thorough background information about your prospective tenant is crucial. With an alarming increase in crime’s rates, you should be certain about the person before handing over your property. Be sure that your tenant is not involved in any legal or crime related issues.

Your first priority should be to collect adequate personal information about the person. Verify the person’s name, social security number, birth certificates, license details, etc. If the person has a passport, verify the details mentioned and check for its authenticity. Next, ask the tenant to fill out the rental application. This form should contain details regarding name, the address of the previous residence, multiple phone numbers, the place where he/she works, salary information and details about the bank account. Also ask the tenant to give details about two references whom you can contact in case of an emergency or for verification purposes. If you find any of the above details to be misrepresented or find it conflicting when you cross check it, immediately ask the person for clarification.

Next, do not feel shy to check the person’s previous history. Make sure the prospective tenant does not have any legal issues or any criminal history towards his name. Make sure he has a clean record on all fronts.

You can also ask the tenant details about his credit history. You can get an idea about the person’s payments, if there are any bankruptcies or if the person has had a credit mishap.

Failing to check any of the aforementioned details might land you in a lot of trouble. So, make sure you are renting your property out to a person who is clean and does not have any pending legal issues against his name.
