Ontario Landlords – Become a Member of the Ontario Landlords Association and Find Good Tenants! Get Premium Credit Checks for Only $10 Per Check!
The key to becoming a successful landlord in Ontario is finding good tenants and avoiding the bad ones.
What’s a “Good” Tenant?
A good tenant is someone who pays the rent on time, respects the lease and the landlord, and takes care of your rental property like it’s their own home.
What’s a “Bad” Tenant?
There are many out there! A bad tenant is someone who won’t pay the rent. Or damages your property. Or both.
You want to find a tenant who will respect you, the property, and the law. Good tenants are out there, waiting for you to find them.
How Can I Find Good Tenants and Avoid the Bad Ones?
One of the best tenant screening tools is a credit check.
What Does a Credit Check Do?
A credit check will give you vital information about your potential renter.
That’s Exactly What I Want!
This is what ever smart and professional landlord wants. And the Ontario Landlords Association which is made up of landlords knows it and give Ontario landlords the deal of a life-time!
How Do I Do a Credit Check?
What Can A Credit Check Tell Me About a Potential Tenant?
Let’s take a look at why a credit check is an essential part of the screening process for Ontario landlords.
#1: Tenants with Good Credit Have a Proven History of Paying Their Bills
A tenant with good credit obviously has a history of paying their bills on time. Someone’s financial past is an important indicator of the present. A strong history of paying the bills means it’s more likely they will pay your the rent.
#2: Tenants with Good Credit are Likely to Want to Keep Their Good Credit
If a tenant has great credit (especially in the uncertain economic world we live in today!) they will want to keep it. Tenants with good credit scores will not jeopardize their scores by screwing their landlord around.
#3. Good Credit Means the Tenants Understand How A Business Runs
When you rent to a tenant who has a history of good credit they will understand your position as a business person. They will understand your insistence of getting rent paid ON TIME!
How Much Does a Credit Check Cost?
Most financial companies want annual membership fees and charge over $20/check. Ontario Landlords Association members can avoid these high financial hurdles and get premium credit checks for only $10/check with no annual fee!
This Is Awesome!
Landlords know what landlords need. The Ontario Landlords Association exists to protect and assist landlords. When you own your own rental properties, with your own money, and face the everyday challenges of being a landlord in Ontario you know what tools and services you need to succeed.
