MY agent was good, but he wasn't the listing agent. It's the listing agent that doesn't seem very attentive..

We had a place fall through just because the listing agent was a ditz and wouldn't return phone calls. Or if she did she forgot who we were. I feel your pain.

Dear Prospective Tenant, sorry if you think I am being nit picky. I am sure you are a very nice person but I have had many nice people suddenly become not so nice people once they move in.

As far as running a background check that is very important and actually comes before the credit check in my opinion. As a Landlord I am looking for previous evictions in this state and others regarding any maiden or married names of prospective tenants. Evictions are not something prospective tenants usually want to divulge.

I am also looking for court records to see if you have been or are being sued for back rent or damage by previous landlords. This doesn't always come up in credit checks.

I also want to see if you or any of your family members have criminal records including juveniles (limited info there). Some HOA's even check for Sex Offender data too.

It's not that you are a bad person it's just the fact that people before you ruined it for everyone else.

Sincerely Prospective Landlord

Yes, as a landlord, I too ask for as much as I can. Had one tenant that came thru with flying colors, only to sneak in 2 other people and a small dog, then say he had a death in family -(why rent late), allowed him to stay - mistake, had to evict, waited believing poor guy had issues. Afterwards all kinds of creditors at house looking for tenant. Not good.

We really didn't mind the hoop-jumping. We were just not used to it being done in our area. We've been stellar tenants in the same rental for the past 5 years and prior to that owned houses. We were just surprised at what we had to go through, but, again, I assume it's because of the transient nature of the city. I live in New England, known for people never leaving. Hell, the Pilgrims lost what, half of their population the first Winter and stuck it out?

We gave the agent in LV the application, bank statements, tax returns, personal references, professional references, and even pics of our dogs! And $4000 later in move-ins, we got the place. Of course, it's the 29th and he won't return calls to schedule a walkthrough and get the keys.. ugh.
Are you serious?

You needed ALL THAT to rent a condo? Tax returns, bank statements?
That seems awful excessive imo.

It's a SFH, not a condo, so maybe that makes things different, not really sure. And from what I gather the owner is somewhere else in the world and has the property management company take care of things. I don't know if the rigamarole was from the owner or the management company, but it's all set now ABF trailer loaded and locked, going away party tonight, recovery from the going away party tomorrow, and we hit the road at 4:00am on Monday!

Nope. Perfectly reasonable for the self employed. A w2 worker can probably get by with a couple of pay stubs. What the LL wants is proof of income.
