Our real estate company requires a credit check before renting any of our
homes. We do not check credit scores. We also require 3 personal
references and a security deposit. .
If there are extenuating circumstances, like medical bills. it is considered.
Many do not understand that home owners have to pay higher insurance
on rentals, have to pay county taxes, and town tax, if home is located in town.
Owners may also still have a monthly mortgage payment on the home, and
have continued maintenance bills to pay.
