Kevin Olson discusses tenant screening. What do you believe tenant screening is? What do you believe it should be?
Screening can be as simple as verifying a driver’s license matches the person filling out the application. Even this isn’t always done.
Income verification, what does that mean? Is it looking at pay stubs or w-2s? Talking to employers?
Screening credit can be as little as pulling a credit score, and as much as a full report with details. Many things that sound straight forward really are not. Property managers don’t always do everything they should, and when they are desperate to place a tenant things can go downhill fast.
We encourage everyone to check out just how many property managers are in court each week. You can view the list online, or attend proceedings to see what’s going on.
