Check for Internal Consistency
Once we've assembled the picture the applicant we now take a look to make sure the story makes sense. If it doesn't make sense, it isn't true. There are many examples of this we've seen during our years as property managers but here's one example.
A 54 year-old female applies to rent a property. She intends to let her 25 year old daughter live with her. However the mother has a large home in Mclean. She owns that home jointly with her husband whom she is not divorcing or separating from. The story doesn't make sense. The mother has no intention of moving in, she is trying to cover for her daughter's bad credit / lack of income or whatever. It's even possible that she is participating in the scheme because she wants us to have the tenant from hell, rather than have the daughter move in with her and her husband in Mclean.
Our Five Step Process
- We Check The Applicant’s Credit History
- We Investigate The Applicant’s Criminal History
