Some Basic Rental Requirements You Should Always Ask Your Applicants

Image

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.

Tri County Management uses these guidelines when seeking for tenants. This is the first step to locating great tenants.

Happy Renting~
