Finding a good tenant is not always easy. Landlords should require all prospective tenants to complete a rental application. With the information provided in that application, landlords should verify employment, previous landlord references, and check the county records to ensure that there are no judgments, liens or criminal background problems present.
Landlords may also want to employ a third-party to obtain a credit report for a prospective tenant, but landlords should consult an attorney to ensure they are in compliance with applicable federal laws.
