Please find another tenant, if you can. I had a similar applicant with 600 credit, great manners, few collections on repot, employed, looked like a true gentleman. He was my first tenant and I rented a room in my 3 bed condo. Within 6 months, he started abusing neighbors, other room mates, started using f word to everyone else including me. He hit the room mate’s car, hosted parties with his one night stand girl friends and the list goes. Finally I had to evict him. He did not pay last month rent. I paid more than 500 in legal, what a nightmare. Luckily I did a m2m lease. I did not mention that he started forgetting rent payments!
Low credit or collections or late payments on a credit report means you have been warned.
After this, i screen everyone like hell and tightened my lease agreements. I don’t want to rent to Warren buffet himself unless I am convinced. Be a machine when screening new tenants, don’t act like you are a human. Careful if someone acts too nice or wants to be friends with you within few minutes. Good luck.
