Always screen your tenants. You can pre-screen them over the phone so that if they do not meet all of your required criteria you won’t waste their time or yours showing them a home they may not qualify for. Use these guidelines when pre-screening.
1)Monthly income at least 2 times the rent.
2)Currently employed for no less than 6 months and/or proof of monthly funds from other sources.
3)No recent evictions.
4)Good rental history from non family members. No NSF checks, late rent, evictions or complaints within 1 year.
5)Good credit score with no recent outstanding debts.
6)No criminal activity within 7 years.
