Tenant screening

Tenant screening

If you've owned rental property in Dubai for a long time and have been a landlord, you've probably had at least one unpleasant renter. It's usually a good idea to have a solid tenant screening process in place to weed out any possible scumbags. The procedure can be demanding, but it doesn't have to be prohibitively expensive or time-consuming.

To secure yourself from it you need to make your due diligence in the very beginning – before you sign the tenancy contract. Any information related to the prospect tenant may help in getting more accurate tenant screening result. Never rely on the broker making it for you, broker's duty is to get the landlord and the tenant put their signatures in the tenancy contract – that's it!

  • Profile of the tenant

Family, couple or a single tenant – it should match you targeted profile. As an example: to avoid the risk of sublease it's recommended not to rent 4-bedroom apartment to a single person. Obviously, the matching profile of the tenant should be supported with valid documents.

  • Rental history of the tenant

The tenant might be for years in the UAE, however it shouldn't be considered as prove of outstanding rental history, mainly long-term relationships with previous landlords somehow proves it. It is less likely you going to have a problem with the tenant, referred positively by the previous landlord.
