How do landlords verify a prospective tenant’s income and employment?

Help the community by answering this question:


If the landlord own a condo to rent, usually his association management will need to approve the tenant and to do so, they will need to make a fuss Financial, employment and criminal.

Or, a Landlord can hire a Professional Realtor who will (for an extra fee) make the necessary research on potential tenants.

Or, if those two suggestions above do not apply to you, simply Google "tenant credit and employment report" and dozen of outfits who specialize in credit reports will come up.

This service is free for landlords and charges the tenants $7.00. You just create a link, send it to the potential tenant and the tenants put in their bank info. As soon as they do it you get an email notification and you can see their income. Makes it pretty easy to access a tenants ability to pay rent each month, its easy and free.

There is typically on applications a requirement of showing pay stubs. That gives them the necessary information usually the last 2- 4 pay stubs.

On your Tenants Application you should ask for info on employment and income; verify with a manager at place of work; ask for pay stubs
If potential tenant is a tenant at present, ask for present AND previous landlords: present one may lie, previous one will tell you the truth... I'm a landlord to multiple properties since 1987...
