Tenant turnover is something that every landlord must expect, but high tenant turnover is a different story because the reality is that high tenant turnover is a sign that one thing is missing from the first contact with a tenant, to when they actually move in.


Tenant screening is the missing link because, without this crucial part of the property management process, it’s possible for a landlord to choose an unqualified tenant who may be a nightmare for the landlord, and ultimately leave the rental property in a state of disrepair.


Tenant Screening Tips for Landlords


Even though many landlords excel at tasks like rent collection or maintenance, tenant screening is often one thing that they are not doing well enough.


Thankfully, tenant screening doesn’t have to be a complicated process for landlords, especially when they follow these tips:


Tip #1 – Follow A Written Screening Criteria


Before screening tenants, every landlord must develop a written criterion, and stick with it, because following unified screening criteria will eliminate chances that some renters can come back later and accuse the landlord of bias because one renter was approved for a property versus the other.


Tip #2 – Always Verify Income Sources


Every landlord wants to know that their tenant can pay rent on time each month and the only way to have that peace of mind is by verifying a tenant's income sources.


Sadly, some tenants may try to create fake pay stubs and use other methods to produce fake income sources so landlords should also request at least 3 months’ worth of tenant bank statements.


Tip #3 – Think Like a Detective


Besides using the above tips, landlords should also contact a renter’s job and past rental references to learn more about the character of the tenant they plan on renting to.


This step is important because a little research, and checking a renter's social media profiles, could save a landlord the time, money, and hassle of renting to a troublesome tenant.
