A Diligent Landlord Always Screens Their Tenants


Instead of pouring over the paper background and credit checks like this poor landlord, why not move the entire process online?


The dictionary defines diligent as “having or showing care and conscientiousness in one’s work or duties.”

I know, I know, after you graduate high school you’re told that you’re not supposed to start essays and speeches with the whole “the dictionary defines” spiel (you’re probably actually told that in high school), but, hey, sometimes it actually does work.

Though it is a bit corny, something that isn’t corny at all is dealing with bad tenants. Bad tenants come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing about them is the same: they’re bad. And by bad I mean they don’t pay rent on time, damage your unit, and are disrespectful.

Well, a diligent landlord (ahem, see above) usually doesn’t have to deal with bad tenants. This is because they practice the sacred art of tenant screening.

Yes, tenant screening is a sacred art these days as any landlord who has been burned by an unscreened and ultimately bad tenant will tell you. It is easy, cheap, and saves a ton of potential frustration down the road.

As you probably know, tenant screening is basically looking at a tenant’s background to make sure that they will be reliable when they rent from you. A tenant screen generally involves a background check, a rental history check, and a credit check. With that you get the triple whammy out of the way – you know that they haven’t gotten into any trouble, you know that they’ve been decent tenants at previous residences, and you know that they are pretty solid financially.

All in all, if you’re a landlord, then you shouldn’t pass up on tenant screening. Show some care for your work and save yourself some time by screening each and every one of your tenants before renting to them!
