Importance of tenant screening

  1. Your reputation. One of the most important goals of many landlords is to keep their units filled. Therefore, you want to avoid a high turnover in your properties due to disruptive tenants. Your reputation is on the line when it comes to having good tenants with acceptable background checks in your properties.
  2. Your property. Having disruptive tenants in your property could destroy it. Appliances could become damaged, carpet destroyed and countless other things are at risk of being broken. This will become a huge expense to the landlord. Many landlords are in business to make an income, not throw it away on repairs.
  3. Your existing residents. You could potentially lose good tenants who have been renting from you for some time. Troublesome tenants could drive the good tenants away. It’s your responsibility to maintain a safe environment for all your residents.
  4. No payment. The tenant you chose for your rental property could move out without giving you notice and without paying you the current month’s rent. While this could happen with any tenant, the risk is potentially higher when you fail to do tenant screening.
  5. Save money. If you do tenant screening, you could actually save yourself money. Imagine the tenant destroying much of your property and then leaving without paying for it, not only would you have to spend the money to fix everything, but you’d also spend money suing them in court. This could lead to hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
