One of the most important steps in renting your property is finding the right tenant. The right tenant will save you countless potential headaches, and can be the difference between loss and profitability!
At HomeLife Peninsula Property Management, we provide comprehensive screening of all prospective tenants. This includes the use of pre-rental applications and reference checks, which include a credit check, as well as business and personal references, including references from former neighbors. A professional rental/lease agreement is also part of the package, and this agreement is fully reviewed with the tenants. We also review the tenant's insurance.
We have a two page questionnaire that must be completed. Often we visit a prospective tenant to observe the condition of their current residence. We have attended courses sponsored by the RCMP to aid us in screening potential tenants. After our investigation we consult with the owner before making any agreements with the tenants. Our comprehensive screening process includes:
After a prospective tenant has been screened and approved, we meet with the tenant for to turn over the property. This provides us with an opportunity to review any concerns unique to the property. We follow up and report to the owner the outcome of each showing.
Let us take the headache out of managing your rental property! Finding tenants is just one of the many things that we do to make your ownership experience as painless and as profitable as possible. Contact us to find out more!
