The Importance of a Checklist for the Tenant Screening Process

As one of the most important processes for reducing your risks of tenant problems, including evictions, your tenant screening checklist can ensure your organization implements a consistent process when screening potential new tenants.

Conform to state and local laws

Another important aspect of using a checklist is to ensure your staff and the process you use conforms to the relevant laws. Using Manifestly to gather and document this data means you have an audit trail of exactly what questions were asked the applicant, what data was collected, and why the applicant was rejected or accepted. This further reduces your organizational risks.

Your screening process should cover and gather data on:

  • Previous rental history
  • Employment history
  • Background check
