We have received, reference checked, credit checked and either approved or rejected 11 sets of applications. Two were for smaller properties with just one applicant but the majority were 2-4 people per property, up to 6 people on one application. So approx 30-40 odd individual background checks since last Friday.
Heaps of time spend background checking to ensure the right tenant is matched to the right property.
The students are starting to look around again for properties for next year, and are sending off applications with a scatter gun approach. Applying for everything that moves and hoping one sticks. This can be a pain in the rear end, because the applicant tenant cant remember what house we are talking about when we speak to them as they have applied for so many, some sight unseen.
Regardless, we get through them, to dig out any awesome tenants that shine through.
Keep warm, and all the best for the weekend ahead. :- )
And remember that I'm never to busy to help or have a chat about your property or any property.
