When qualifying a new tenant through Hemlane, there are 3 qualification questions that are asked from your prospective tenant automatically. Those 3 questions are below:
- Is your credit score over 620?
- Is your monthly income over (3x the rental amount)?
- Do you have pets?
To gain further insight into your prospective tenant(s) in order to qualify them early on, you may want to consider asking additional questions within your prospective tenant's message thread. Some example questions are as follows:
- When are you expecting to move in?
- Why are you looking for a new home?
- Do you smoke?
- Do you have any co-applicants?
You will want to ensure you are following Fair Housing guidelines when talking to your prospective tenants which protects people nationwide from discrimination in housing against race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and disability.
