A Credit Check Can Help Landlords Rent to Good Tenants and Avoid “Tenants From Hell”

The post at the Ontario Landlords forum was unsettling to many landlords across the province.

It was about a Toronto Star report about Nina Willis, who The Star calls a “Tenant From Hell.”

Many landlords had read about this tenant in 2011 and 2012 and thought the story was finally over.

Unfortunately this tenant is still ripping off landlords by moving in and not paying rent and calling the city about maintenance issues she knew about when she moved in.

This “tenant from Hell” uses the same methods over and over to trick landlords:

1. She appears to be very friendly and cheerful and reasonable.

2. She looks for properties that need some minor care.

3. The tenant says she will fix the minor repairs needed.

4. She presents fake employment references a

5. Once she moves in she won’t pay rent claiming the property needs serious repairs.

It’s a huge scam and this time she has targeted a Scarborough landlord.

Post at the Ontario Landlords Forum

“I can’t believe Nina Willis is in the news, yet once again. I wish all landlords stayed on top of things.”

“All one has to do is read the news or follow any of these forums to learn and be aware of everything and anything related to their rental property.”

It’s true.

Ontario landlords need to be careful because the Landlord and Tenant Board is biased against landlords.

This is a clear example of why Ontario Landlords need to do careful tenant screening including a tenant credit check.
