Red Flags of Potential Tenants

Here are some things that others have used as a potential "warning" sign of a bad tenant. Of course, full due diligence is required...
  1. If, when asked, the person cannot show you a drivers license...yet they drove to the appointment
  2. If a person calls about your rental unit and before asking any questions or hearing about the unit either (a) asks when he can see it; or (b) says "I'll take it".
  3. The tenant hands you a copy of their credit report and says they just ran one recently (run another anyway!)
  4. Many inquiries on their credit report in the last few months
  5. Names on application, names you were told on phone, and/or drivers license names don't match.
