Sounds like it's a non-issue, since the potential renter quit communicating. Maybe they found someplace else. But I appreciate the advice, it's all good info in case it comes up again.

Also in the line of background check (100% neccessary) lots of people claim to be "college students". If that is the case i would want a copy of their transcript.

At least 12+credit hours a semester and a 3.0 is a college student

Under 12 or 3.0 and they are something else

Yes...a part-time college student with mediocre grades.

As a landlord myself, I look for two things when I run a prospective tenants credit and rental history:

1. Do they have any evictions or judgements for non payment of rent.

2. References (at least 3 from previous landlords) I ask two questions:
a) what were their move out costs, did you return the entire deposit?
b) would you rent to them again?

I have chosen tenants with really bad credit over A credit folks based upon the responses to those two questions.

I have never been burned.

My position is, I don't really care if they pay their credit card bill or not, as long as they take care of my investment as if it were their own and that they pay the rent on time.
