Part I: Rental Applications

The critical step in a tenant screening process is the rental application. Is it complete? Is it true? And is it enough?

In this segment, we will review the general context in which tenant screening happens, covering credit, criminal, and housing history. Then we will review the MassLandlords application box-by-box, with examples completed. Can we verify their prior address? What do their pay stubs look like, or do they have proof of subsidy or other income? Why does it say "etc." under pets? Finally, we'll give guidance on how to communicate acceptance or rejection, and why ghosting an applicant may come back to haunt you.

Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to use the MassLandlords rental application, how to verify information presented, and how to rent knowing your new customers are likely to succeed.
