Qualifications for tenants

1 Reply

We just purchased 16 units in OK.  I am wondering what some of your qualifications for new renters are?  Minimum credit score, minimum income requirements, etc. 

I am putting our requirements in place and just curious what some of you other owners/managers do?

 I've screened & trained my team to screen 1,000's of tenants over the years. A few things we always look for are as follows.

  • Income of at least 3x the rent
  • No violent felonies
  • No evictions
  • Stable job/income history
  • History of consistently paying their bills
  • Non combative / non aggressive
  • Not a total savage
