Today’s newspaper left my eyes wide open. Lines I was reeading were like

“Tenants brutally killed old couple and ran away with $5,000,000 and jewelry worth millions”

You can reduce damage to you and your property and eliminate criminal activity by Tenant screening before you let your apartment on Rent.

Talk to landlords who have previously rented to the prospective tenant. Ask them if the tenant was ever late with his or her rent payments, and if he or she damaged the property in any way. Don’t call current landlords. If the prospective tenant is currently renting a home, do not call the tenant’s landlord. The prospective tenant could in reality be a problem, and his or her current landlord could lie to you, just to get rid of him or her.

Tenant screening is necessary, and after screening a few tenants, it becomes very routine.
