How important is Tenants Screening? Let's find out

Tenant screening is a big part of what you do as a property manager. You want to fill your units quickly to avoid losing money, but you need to find the right tenants to move in.

That’s where tenant screenings come in. Checking the financial, criminal, and rental history of prospective tenants helps ensure you get a tenant who will pay rent on time, who is not likely to break their lease, and who could even stay for the long-term.

But of course, a screening can be time-consuming. And if you’re managing multiple properties, screening alone could take up the better part of your day.

So how do you get the most accurate assessment of every prospective tenant who applies to your units without holding up the rental process? 

This is how tenant screening works. When a prospective tenant applies to one of your homes or units, you take their information and run a credit check, a rental history, a criminal background check, and you may call their references.

Tenant screening is an item critical to the government as well, shown by the attached link.

Here at Silqu Limited we do tenant screening which is under property management among other services that we offer our clients. Our Tenant Background checks include all the vital data that landlords need when judging a tenant applicant. It’s a great way to find out more about their previous renting experience, the stability of their income and the impression they are left on people in the past. As Property Managers we choose the best tenants for their properties while opening up the market for an even larger tenant pool.

Earlier we did a blog on how Nairobi Tenants have certain tricks up their sleeves to fleece landlords. This has been a real problem in Kenya in general. We aim to change this and avoid it at all costs through the tenant screening.
