Verifying Rental Applicant Income - 1099 Contractor

3 Replies

Folks, I am placing my first tenant and would appreciate your help!

I have an applicant who passed both my credit and background checks. This person has listed a substantial monthly income as an independent 1099 contractor, and has provided me with a copy of his 2017 1099 form. I also received verification from his employer that the earnings info is correct.

Everything looks good on paper, yet my "spidey-senses" are tingling. What other due diligence should I use?
