Is the Credit Check Enough?

Modified on Thu, 17 Jun 2021 at 10:01 AM

A credit check can give you an idea of your applicant’s financial capabilities at a specific moment. It does not allow you to anticipate with certainty his or her future behavior: a candidate with very good credit may not pay his or her rent on time; on the other hand, a candidate with a bad credit score could prioritize the payment of his or her rent over his or her other expenses.

The credit check is therefore only the first step in a successful pre-rental screening. Combined with rental and employment references and a thorough background check, it will allow you to make the most informed decision possible.
