Serial Bad Tenants

The latest landlord tricked by them is Cara Falconer in Maple Ridge.

Instead she rented to these tenants without even doing a simple reference check.
No Tenants Checks At All?

She rented to them for April 2014 and guess what.
What Happened to this Maple Ridge Landlord?

How Can A Landlord Avoid These Type of Serial Bad Tenants?

We sometimes think only Ontario landlords are facing bad tenants who want to rip them off.
It’s not the case.
Bad tenants exist in BC and their numbers are growing.
Ok, So How Can I Avoid Bad Tenants and Rent to Good Tenants?
One of best tools to screen your tenants and rent to good tenants is a credit check.
If I do a Credit Check What Information Will I Get?
If you conduct a credit check you will receive the type of important information you need to make a smart, sound and informed decision on whether or not you want to rent to them.
For experienced and professional landlords, a tenant credit is essential.
If you become a member of the BC Landlords Association you get terrific deals for discounts on premium credit check services.
You only have to pay a one-time fee to get access to wonderful landlord tenant check services such as GARDA and Equifax.
You Mean It’s Only a One-Time Fee To Become a Member of the BC Landlords Association?
Companies like Landlord BC charge an annual fee that simply doesn’t make sense for many small and medium sized landlords.
And their “discounted credit checks” are only what are called “partial checks”. This means the information you get is very limited.
The BC Landlords Association provides terrific tenant credit check discounts for GARDA which offer you “full checks.” This is a real credit check which offers you a complete look into your potential tenant’s financial history.
