Let's take a closer look at some of the details for our tenant application form below:

Employment Status and Duration - The stability of your tenant's income is more important than its amount. Is he a full time government employee or is he is a budding entrepreneur still looking for that big break? Duration of his employment is also an important indicator - it's best to choose someone who has been working at the same company at least 1 year.

Average Monthly Income - Always compare their person income to the rent amount that you're asking for. The general rule of thumb is to find someone whose total income is at least 4 times higher than the rent. In other words, your asking rent is 25% or less of his or her income.

However from our personal experience, we feel that 25% is a bit too strict and tends to limit your pool of suitable tenants. We recommend that you relax your criteria to consider applicant whose income is 3 times higher than the rent. (rent amount is 33% or less of his or her income).

Background and Credit Check - Once you have shortlisted your tenant applicants, it's essential to run a credit check on them with a reputable tenant screening site such as Tenant Verification Service or E-Renter..
