Lessen your liabilities by following these simple tips. Become a model landlord with less to no stress. 

  • Qualify a tenant before entering into a formal agreement.

  • Be sure to evaluate all applicants in a fair and nondiscriminatory manner.

  • Check with present and past employers as indicated on the application.

  • Run a credit check with one of the credit agencies—but be careful.

  • Check prior landlords and references.

  • Consider running criminal background checks.

  • Cultivate responsible tenants.

  • Be responsive when issues arise.

  • Be clear on where you stand.

  • Don’t get caught unaware.

  • In general, whatever you offer should be offered equally to all applicants.

  • Documenting the logic behind the decisions can protect you.
