Tips for Tenant Screening for Landlords, Part II

A Woman in a Cream Sweater Stands at the Stove and Stirs Something in an Orange PotRPM Northwest Indiana’s leasing services in Crown Point IN include providing screening services for potential tenants. We talked about a few tips for effectively screening your tenant applicants, and here are a few more:

Run background checks on all adult applicants: Many landlords make the mistake of only screening one applicant, and while the one who is screened may have a clean record, the other adults who intend to move in may not. Make sure you are looking into everyone’s background.

Create and follow an application process: Not only does this help you keep things organized, but in the event that you deny an application for a valid reason, you want to make sure you’re protecting yourself from a false accusation of discrimination against a protected class.

Hire a property manager: A property management company like RPM Northwest Indiana that provides leasing services in Crown Point IN has the experience and resources to make sure your property is well run, and your tenants are quality people.
