evaluation process for tenants includes a thorough Tenant Application Form & Authorization, ensuring each adult renter completes an accurate application & submits to a credit check after approval.
Smith will confirm each applicant can make rental payments through careful review of income, amount of current rent, consistent and timely rent payments, property condition, complaint history, and leasing obligations. Vehicle information and a copy of a valid photo ID will also be kept on file.
Before new tenants occupy the property we will inspect and generate a report on the condition. A digital camera may used to record the visual inspection. The same process will apply at the move-out phase.
Additional inspections can be arranged for a fee, please contact one of our property management experts for more.
