Protect Your Investment with Tenant Screening

Your rental property represents a significant investment. You work hard to maintain the property and build your nest egg. You may even be paying a mortgage on the property, so when you rent it, you want to be positive that your tenant choice is above reproach. Tenant screening can help.

Appearances can be deceiving. The applicant who shows up at your door may look like exactly the type of tenant you want. A potential tenant's reference may be friends who have no interest in telling you the truth about your potential tenant. References may be innocent dupes who know nothing more about the tenant's financial and criminal history than you do, or they may be willing accomplices, hoping that this time the tenant won't be a problem.

Tenant screening goes beyond the traditional checking of references to help you make choices about the potential risk to your property and the kinds of headaches you can expect with this tenant. If a tenant has been previously evicted, had accounts in collections, or been charged with a noise complaint, screening will let you know.

Another nice feature is that screening helps you make financial decisions based on the prospective tenant's history. Maybe the person has previously filed bankruptcy due to medical bills but has always paid rent on time. Tenant screening helps you identify these types of issues. If the problems are relatively minor, the report will help you determine when an increased security deposit is enough to cover the risk.

You can't always tell from the type of car a person drives or the clothes a person wears if he or she pays their bills on time. The guy in the BMW and the suit may be a bigger credit risk than the couple in blue jeans and a beat-up pickup truck who live within their means. Screening helps you see past the trappings and get to the heart of the matter. Is this tenant going to pay me on time?

This can also help you avoid tenants who have had a brush or two with the law. Even the most basic report will provide you with information on a tenant's criminal history and, if there is one, his or her sex offender status. Screening is also a patriotic act as the basic search also includes a check to make sure your prospective tenant isn't on any Department of Homeland Security watch lists.

A quick Google search of your prospective renter isn't going to tell you everything you need to know. It may not find all the aliases the person has used or even verify that the tenant is who he or she claims to be. With tenant screening, you get the peace of mind you deserve and the protection you need for your real estate investment.
