It falls on the property owner’s shoulders to perform the appropriate due diligence to protect their investment, be it a multi-family complex or a single family home. A single high-risk tenant can cause major damage and substantial loss in income dollars. Tenant screening has therefore become the intelligent approach to maintaining a safe, comfortable and pleasant place for people to rent. Comprehensive tenant screening will ultimately result in a more profitable and successful operation. So, before you hand over the keys, KNOW your tenant. Your reputation and income depend on it.
