Request social security # to collect later on for damages👍 Tenant screening is so important! No personal check only money order or certified check 2 months security deposit.

States and cities are beginning to enact new laws which will ban a lot of your screening. Things like criminal background checks even credit checks.

This landlord has concerns about the Fair Housing Act. Why is that the case? He must launder his illegality by out sourcing his violations. This is a red flag for me. He is rejected as my landlord. I am not giving money to the "landlord from hell".

Letting is what landlords do, renting is what tenants do!

Excellent video, glad I found you guys.
I don't have a property yet, but I have a renter horror stpry- it involves my father- in law.
He was an attorney...not a very good one. He was sleazy, dishonest, a stereotypical lawyer. He spent the last 10 years of his life fighting dis-barment.
He rented a house from a young man. The young man had a nice 3 bedroom/ 2 bath single family house in a great location. The problem was , my father - in - law didn't like to work. Oh, he's do a couple of bankruptcies a year, but he was always on the prowl for gullible, trusting women who would support him.

He spent all his rent money trying to woo a 19 year old girl ( he was 300 lbs and 52 years old.)The landlord tried and tried to get his rent, but my father - in - law knew how to legally drag out the eviction process for MONTHS.
I was so angry and disgusted with what he did to that young landlord. That landlord trusted Wayne, in good faith. He was put through the financial ringer by a DEADBEAT with a law degree.

SO... when I get my first rental property, I won't rent to a lawyer...ever. Any halfway successful attorney should make enough money, and qualify easily for a home loan. If the lawyer is renting, that says something.
Stereotypes are funny things, there always seems to be a small thread of truth somewhere in there. That is particularly true of attorneys.

2:09 'Credit and criminal'? Why would you want a criminal'? I've never heard of such a term before.
5:54 Alright, I won't... I'll hook all my friends and family into the mistake too.

A landlord does not need drivers license! In some areas it is illegal to collect it..... Also with sec. dep. in some areas it must be returned after three years in same place if rent has never been late AND no other lease violations. Scoring is good however it's not a science or art and has prevented good tenants and permitted bad ones. Anyone smart enough can make sure they look good on paper........been there done that. Oh, and the income being rent x 2.5 or 3 isn't always applicable either. This dude just said a bunch of stuff we already know anyway.

You're like the nice Jason Vorhees of real estate management.

Tenant screening is so important! The first contact potential renters have with your unit is through your rental ad. So one way to "screen" tenants is making sure to write a advertisement that will attract good tenants. https://www.tsci.com/8-ways-create-better-rental-ad/

JUST HAD A TENANT POST MY PERSONAL CONTACT INFO ON CRAIGSLIST POSTS AND I HAVE SPENT THE ENTIRE WEEK HUNTING AND FLAGGING THESE POSTS. HAD A PROBLEM WITH HER OVER A CAR IN THE YARD THAT WAS ON BLOCKS AND MISSING TIRES WITH A BLOWN TRANSMISSION FOR SEVERAL WEEKS. AS SOON AS I MENTIONED SHE HAD A FINITE AMOUNT OF TIME TO REMEDY THE SITUATION OR HAVE THE CAR REMOVED SHE LOST IT, NAMES, THREATS, IT WAS AWFUL. THAT NIGHT AND INTO THE EARLY MORNING I BEGAN RECEIVING CALLS AND TEXTS AND THROUGH THESE INTERACTIONS I WAS ABLE TO IDENTIFY 15 POSTS SELLING OR WANTING VARIOUS THINGS. SHE IS SECOND ON THE LEASE AND HAS FEW MONTHS LEFT. ANYTHING I CAN DO OR SHOULD DO?
CANNOT PROVE IT WAS HER WITHOUT SUBPOENA FROM JUDGE TO CRAIGSLIST FOR INFO ON POST ID.

I have a low 600s credit score due to medical bills but I have never been late on rent, car, or any thing else. I'm a great renter. Clean, quiet, and pay rent on time. Can't always go off credit.

The 7 Most Common Tenant Complaints How you can properly screen tenants and avoid 1 month ago   13:27

Some people never invest in real estate because of their fear that they are going to get a call at 11 pm (or even worse 2 am) that something bad has happened at their property. I have been a landlord for 11 years now and the truth is I have actually gotten that phone call, but these calls have been few and far between. In today’s video, my property manager and I talk about strategies to reduce the most common maintenance calls and complaints.
