|LM says:I would probably need a bit more information to give you a good answer but I'll take a shot. The short answer is, I might. Someone like that is not going to be a home buyer for a long time so they will be a renter for a long time. It really would depend on where they are at right now. Do they have a job? Have they been at that job for a while? Income amount? What debts do they currently have? Questions to these answers should give you an idea if they would make good renters or not. |
A good place to start is with these tenant screening tips and doing a tenant background check. To make your life easier use Tenant Verification Services to make sure you got your bases covered.
You can always protect yourself by asking for a higher security deposit or requiring rent to be paid in money order/cashiers check and stuff like that. The point is there is some research on them you have to do in order to make a decision and you can put some controls into place to protect yourself.
Let us know how it goes...
