Tenant screening is such an integral part of being a successful real estate investor, landlord, or property manager. It starts with the marketing of the property and having a quality property. Pre-screening questions before showing a property will keep you and potential tenants from wasting time. If they won’t fit, within the law, then why waste time? Furthermore, a complete and concise application is the final key to evaluating a potential tenant prior to signing a lease agreement.
Important facts needed for a thorough application:
- Full name
- Important personal info (SSN, birth date, etc.)
- Employment/Income status
- Current rental verification
- And much more!
Things you DO NOT want to ask
- National Origin
- Familial status
- And disability
These last few are a violation of the Fair Housing Act and will lead to serious trouble if you violate them. Be Careful!
We conduct extensive screening on all tenants and ensure all of our properties and applications are within the Fair Housing Guidelines set forth by HUD.
Starting a lease in the right direction will help ensure a successful lease agreement for both tenant and landlord.
The Fair Housing Act prohibits any preference, limitation, or discrimination because of race, religion, color, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin, or intention to make such preference, limitation, or discrimination in connection with any aspect of a residential real estate transaction. Flagship Property Management, LLC, through its website www.flagshiprentalproperty.com, social media pages, and email correspondence, encourages and supports the equal housing practices of the Fair Housing Act in the conduct of its business. We encourage users and visitors of our pages and media to follow appropriate guidelines in compliance with the Federal Housing Act as well as any state or local requirements.
