Finding Perfect Tenants

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Realty Specialists Inc.,

If you want  Tenants, you need to ask the Right Tenant Questions....

You may not ask 

  • Do you want Kids?
  • What is your ethnic back ground?
  • Are you Gay or Lesbian?
  • What is your religious Back ground?
Or you will land at the Human Right Tribunal.
 
You may ask
  • What is your income?
  • Where do you work?
  • How many people will be living here and what are their names?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Do you smoke?
  • Will you be operating a home based business?
  • What do you do when you can't sleep?


You could ask;
Tell me about yourself and watch their voluntary disclosures.
Remind them you need references, a credit bureau and you will be making enquiries.

You can ask for First and Last Month's Rent

  • No Key Money 
  • No Security Deposits
  • No Cleaning Deposits


No 3, 4 or 6 months in advance because they are new to Canada.  Any extra fees you charge they merely save the recipts and deduct them from month 11 ( since you have the last month on hand)  You must pay interest on their deposit and document it.

Because THEY [your prospective tenants] even if they agree, cannot be held to comply with what is illegal with the Landlord Tribunal; A Tenant application at the Tribunal will result in all of those deposits / charges being ordered refunded immediately.

Real Estate Investment - Condo Investment is so popular because it currently guarantees a 97.5% success rate.  (Sheriff's evictions result in less than 2.5% of all rentals) There is no rent control on units constructed post 1991. Even at 25% down per unit; someone is paying your mortgage for you.

Will there be fewer people living in Toronto in 20 years? Is 1% per year on your savings the return you need to retire?

So.... What are we waiting for?

The hardest search of all.  So much you can't ask and even if you think you have  the best ones...they turn out to be bums.
