Some tips to avoid a bad tenant


Remember that an empty apartment is much better than a poorly rented apartment. Indeed, thanks to technology, we are now able to investigate a future tenant. It is therefore important to check the antecedents of the stranger who will rent your building. Once the lease is signed and the individual moved in, it is often too late to investigate the candidate. In this article, we share some tips to avoid the worst.

  1. The credit inquiry. ACCESS IDentité offers you the opportunity to check if the candidate is a good payer. Does he have debts? Does he pay his accounts on the due date? Has he ever declared bankruptcy? This gives you a good idea of the type of person and their payment habits. Of course, ACCESS IDentité provides you with a written report recommending or not the candidate according to several points evaluated.
  2. The character inquiry. ACCESS IDentité is based on many aspects of the candidate’s life. These aspects are: professional, personal and moral. First of all, we check if the candidate has a job, his salary, his attitude at work, etc. Then we check if the candidate has a criminal record. Finally, a personal survey is conducted with the candidate to verify his relationships, his lifestyle and his past.
  3. Confirmation of the candidate’s claims. ACCESS IDentité confirms or invalidates the candidate’s statements. Indeed, some candidates will lie to the owner about their job, their company, their assets so that they rent them the apartment. ACCESS IDentité is able to determine the candidate’s assets and verify if he is actually telling the truth. We also estimate the candidate’s salary and determine whether or not they are able to pay rent on various current expenditure.
  4. Audits of previous owners. ACCESS IDentité investigates the tenant’s behavior vis-à-vis their former owners. Thus, if the owner says that the candidate has left the housing in a shabby state, we will advise against it. In addition, if the owner says he has difficulty receiving payment, it will be the same.
  5. Complete and detailed report of the candidate. ACCESS IDentité will give you a complete and detailed report of the candidate in question. This report is a summary of the candidate’s survey and will advise you on an informed choice. Of course, the final decision will come back to you. However, remember that a reliable tenant is worth gold.
