Frequently Asked Questions

A Tenant AAA rating is likely what most landlords are looking for. It means a tenant that has the most desirable credit rating.

Finding great tenants for your property can be challenging and time-consuming work. But it will save you many problems that you may have during your rental. Is it like knowing that your tenant isn’t messing with you? We can advise you with some criteria that you should check:

Application form

Ask your tenant to fill out an application form, including your personal information, such as financial information and employment information.

Credit check

The credit check is essential for you to know if your tenant is up to date with their accounts. If not, it means that he must be experiencing some financial difficulty or is not concerned with paying his bills.

Background check

There are some websites where you can consult this information for free. Generally, you will only need the tenant’s social security number.

Talk to the previous tenant

Having done the previous steps, you can talk to the previous tenant to check some information; for example, if the tenant paid the rent on time, he was respectful of his old tenant. Ask everything you need. Before closing the contract, ask everything you need to know about the tenant. We advise you to try to get as much information as possible. Good tenants are also demanding and are looking for good landlords. Following these steps can help you avoid future problems.
