What questions do you ask the previous landlord when carrying out a reference check on your potential tenant?
Here are a few questions to help you with this important process.
Remember, some landlords want rid of their problem tenants; so listen out carefully for any hesitations when they answer.
When did they rent from you?
How long did they live in the rental?
Did they always pay the rent on time?
Did they always pay water on time?
Did they bring maintenance issues to your attention promptly?
Did they have any pets?
Were there any complaints from other Tenants or neighbours?
Was there any damage besides normal wear and tear?
Were they respectful to you and the property?
Did they give you proper notice to end the tenancy?
Out of 10, with 10 being the best, what rate would you give them?
Would you rent to this Tenant again?
