Managing Director Howard Morley discusses how to choose the right tenant for your rental property.

Good tenant selection will ensure your rental property will provide good returns in the current market place and for years to come. Choosing the wrong tenant can lead to maintenance issues, rent arrears and many hours/days of heartache.

 Top Tips

  • Make choices for the long term, take the time to choose the correct tenant, check references from more than one previous landlord.
  • Credit check, an applicant may be already over committed financially and may not be able to afford the rent you require long term. There are professional organisations that can provide this information.
  • Check employment references, that the tenant is a good regular employee with steady income.

Don’t take the ‘first come – first served’ approach. Check out a selection of tenant applicants and then choose the best suited tenant for your property.
