We’re heard about a lot about the challenges British Columbia landlords faced this year.
Most of them involved residential landlords renting to tenants who didn’t pay their rent.
Or tenants who moved in and left leaving thousands of dollars in damages. It also included tenants who harassed their landlords.
Some tenants brag they feel justified in taking these actions because they claim landlords are ‘greedy.’
It’s essential landlords conduct proper tenant screening on prospective tenants.
In this day and age renting to someone based on a good conversation or a call to a previous landlord usually isn’t enough.
We’ve heard the stories.
Some of the worst “tenants from hell” were very charming when the landlord first met them.
Some had lots of personal references.This included glowing letters from ‘former landlords’ and ’employers’ and filled with promises to treat your rental property ‘as if it was their own.’
It is easy for landlords to find any kind of tenant for their rental property. It is much more difficult to find the right tenant who will not pose a risk to your investment.
There are lots of great tenants out there and you want to make sure you rent to them.
