How to Conduct a Tenant Background & Credit Check

If you’re a landlord, odds are that you have encountered at least one not so terrific tenant renting your property. Tenants with a history of bad credit, not paying their rent, evictions or have a criminal record can all make your property investment vulnerable to damage.

Many landlords aren’t aware that they have the right to conduct a thorough tenant background and credit check for any prospective renter of their property. When done properly, a credit and background check can help you determine if a prospective tenant is a good fit for your rental property.
