When it comes to what you say regarding pretty much anything to your tenant, a good rule of thumb is to not share any more than is necessary.  Raising rent?  You don't owe the tenant an explanation.  Changing a policy?  Again, you don't owe them anything other than proper notice.  Listen as David shares a story about how an owner shared too much regarding an upcoming raise in rent and how that is likely going to cost the owner in the long run.
With rents on the rise, security deposits are rising too, causing many renters to be short on available cash to secure the required security deposit.  Taking a partial security deposit can be tricky.  David Pickron discusses why you need to tread lightly when accepting partial security deposits.

With evictions returning to pre-Covid numbers, landlords are utilizing eviction records again in qualifying tenants.  While credit and criminal records are important, how a tenant have taken care of a past property is the strongest indicator of how they will treat your property.  Always include eviction checks where they are available to get the best possible look at your future tenants.
Critical to being a successful landlord is knowing exactly who is applying as a tenant for your property.   Rent Perfect President David Pickron discusses why having an investigative background check, including all known aliases, is so important when onboarding a new tenant.  
Add this smoking policy to protect your property.  One of the quickest ways a property can be devalued happens when a tenant or guest smokes or does other things in/on your property that create obnoxious odors.  David and Scot discuss what steps you can take with your lease to help ensure your property maintains it's value and decreases the potential for your tenant to destroy your property.
As a landlord, one of the most important processes you need to be familiar with is issuing adverse action notices to applicants that did not qualify for your property.  David Pickron and Denny Dobbins discuss the necessity for these notices and how they ultimately protect you.
