Helpful Tenant Screening Steps...
The Landlord Protection Agency® suggests the following steps to take before spending the money on a consumer credit report:
The Criminal Background Authorization & Release Form will remove any doubt of whether the tenant is being up front with you. Not only will you have the tenant's full authorization to do a criminal report with law enforcement agencies, you also have the written authorization required to obtain a credit report.
The fact that the tenant has nothing to hide and is willing to release credit and criminal (if any) history to you shows good faith and cooperation in the screening process.
This form should be used in addition to the LPA Rental Application.
John Reno also does Mortgage Loan Modifications (Nationwide).
Dear Mr. Reno:
A: That's usually how it works. This is distinguished from a trespasser which is a criminal matter. Once the trespasser is there awhile, (usually 30 days) he becomes a squatter and must be evicted.
If you have a landlord tenant problem you'd like to ask a question about, please feel free to e-mail me your question.

"I know I have had lots of excuses for not paying the rent on time, but this time my purse really did get stolen on the way to the bank to make my payment". (note: I guess the purse bandit yanked her purse out of the car while she was at the stoplight. When I asked her to provide me a copy of the police report, she said 'I didn’t file a police report as didn’t want to get anyone in trouble'.) - Linda S, GA
"There are crickets all over the place. Yesterday one was in my soup. I'm not payin till you get rid of the crickets." This tenant doesn't close doors or windows and is responsible in the lease for pests and exterminating. This silly excuse won't work to get him out of the late charge. Funny I only heard about the crickets when I asked where the late rent is. - Jack Klein, NY
"You are discriminating against me! You can't keep asking me for the rent just cause it's late. One more time and I'm complaining to the housing dept. "
She's misinformed. Now I'm not asking, I'm demanding and then I'm evicting - Josh E., CA
