AAM's Guide: How To Screening Tenants In Singapore Property Management Market

With many years of experience in property management, AAM finds that one of the biggest challenges for real estate investors is finding good quality tenants. There are many issues surrounding the "bad tenant" story, but most of these situations can often be avoided if landlords have thoroughly screened applicants in advance. To avoid being tied into a nasty lease with a problematic tenant, it's a good idea to go through a thorough and good screening process. This will save you stress, headaches and not to mention the costs that a bad tenant can cause.

The reality that AAM often sees when customers come to us is that they encounter situations that are detrimental to them, where the tenants are not what they first saw. Some landlords think they can trust their instincts when choosing tenants. However, good or bad first impressions cannot accurately predict how a tenant will behave. So, how can you thoroughly screen potential tenants? Here is a summary of effective ways to screen potential tenants that you can refer to.

AAM points out ways to effectively screen tenants in the Singapore property management market

1. Outline the tenants you expect

According to AAM, this is the basic direction for the first tenant screening that you should take. Before you start screening tenants, it's important to have an idea of ​​what the perfect applicant looks like to you.

There are at least five areas of a person's history and background that a landlord should screen: income, employment, criminal history, credit, as well as residency and previous eviction history. Set your requirements for these areas and from there, you can “visualize” your ideal tenant. To give you an example, a good tenant can be someone who is tidy, has a stable income, respects your property and their surroundings; Ultimately, they intend to rent your home for a long time.

On the other hand, there are many objects that will need different requirements and the requirements can be more specific. For example, if your business is located in a quiet family-friendly suburb, you may want to consider subleasing it to noisy young college students. If you have a property manager, make sure to communicate your vision of the perfect tenant to them.

According to AAM, outlining the standard tenant you would expect is one of the first screening steps when conducting Singapore property management.

2. Check the list of potential tenants in advance

Even before a tenant fills out an application, you can start the screening process by asking a few simple questions. While tenants are viewing your property, you should take the opportunity to get to know them as much as possible. If you don't allow pets in your rental, ask them if they have pets. If you are not allowing people with criminal records to rent your property, mention that you intend to have a criminal background check as part of the application process. You should inform potential hires about your screening process. Either way, it's a good method to weed out the wrong tenants to avoid wasting your time.

Along with asking some strategic questions before they apply, some online research would also be a good idea. If their profile is public, you can review the potential candidate's information. Check out their social online accounts, it can give you a general assessment of what a potential tenant's private life is like and from there, a rough assessment of how they will treat your house.

3. Check identity documents and proof of income of tenant candidates

If you cannot be sure that an applicant is what they say they are, then the screening process will proceed. For that reason, don't start an application check without proof of income and identification. So, during the screening process, make sure that you verify everything in the application when screening applicants. Ask for supporting documents, such as their most recent payroll or bank statement stating their income.

For AAM, checking tenants' payroll within the last 3 months is a necessary step in verifying their ability to pay.

The app is basically a series of questions that give you important information about who will be moving into your property. The answers will only be valid if you perform due diligence and verify them. Due to the detailed factors of Singapore property management, the issue of proof of income and reviewing other documents requires expert assistance.
