The importance of vetting tenants in a slow rental market

What steps should a landlord take to ensure they get good tenants?

The local property rental market is a tough terrain to be playing in right now, because of current economic conditions. It’s therefore important for landlords to ensure that potential tenants are fully vetted for their finances and, as far as is possible, their character.

Letting the vetting process slide in order to get a tenant in your property quickly to secure rent can be a move one lives to regret as once a tenant is in the property, it’s a quite a process to get them out. To further discuss the importance of tenant vetting and the steps landlords should take to ensure that they get good tenants, Nompu Siziba speaks with Tobie Fourie, the national rentals manager at Chas Everitt International.

Tenants in SA have more power and rights versus landlords. Try removing a non paying tenant. Only a court is authorised to do so and the courts are all clogged up.
