How to Screen Tenants

Screening potential tenants is one of the most important tasks a landlord performs. Thorough screening is vital: It will help you weed out problematic applicants who are unlikely to pay rent on time or who might destroy your property. But the screening process can be fraught with legal pitfalls, too—landlords need to take steps to avoid illegal discrimination and ensure that they follow all laws regarding accepting and rejecting applicants.
