Importance of Tenant Screening

There are a lot of advantages to hiring a property management company in Dallas. One of the many important benefits we offer at Specialized property management is a thorough tenant screening and proven qualification process. Without a good tenant screening process, property owners or landlords will likely face a higher probability of running into problems later on. Those issues can include difficulty collecting rent, potential property damage, dealing with a higher vacancy rate, increased legal liabilities, and unfortunately, a higher likelihood of dealing with an eviction.

How Specialized Property Management Dallas Can Help:

  • Minimize the risk of tenants who do not pay and property damage with a thorough background check.
  • Make sure you comply with discrimination laws and the fair credit reporting act throughout the screening process.
  • Require an application for every tenant over 18 years of age.
  • Verify a combined tenant income of at least three times the rent rate.
  • While poor credit is increasingly common in this economy, avoid evictions and judgments and request written explanations of late payments.
  • Verify at least the past two years of rental history with previous landlords and ask if there was any major damage to the last house or apartment.
  • Finally, do a criminal background check to screen out those with a history of drugs or theft, and especially violent or sexual offenders.
