In this special class, Nomads learn the best practices for screening tenants.
The following is the recording of the live webinar presentation I gave on June 6, 2017 with Jassen Bowman on Tenant Screening.
Initial Screening Questions
The following initial screening questions are pulled largely from Brian Williams’ presentation “Tenant Screening Mastery” and are used with permission from Brian.
We recommend that you write these questions down and have them near you when you are marketing a property for rent and taking potential tenant calls. Then, as potential tenants call in, ask the questions and write down the answers. Store a copy of your answers in case there is a dispute or question later about what was said. It is my strong opinion and a best practice that you should not throw away answers when someone does not qualify… those are the one that are most likely to claim that you discriminated against them and so documenting their answers is more important than ever.

I gave a live classroom version of this presentation to Nomads in Fort Collins on June 16, 2016 as well. Premium Nomad can also access this version as well.
The following are improvements I plan to make to this page based on some of my Standard Process Improvement Questions.
