15 Questions You Should Ask When Conducting A Viewing

When you're conducting your own viewings, it can be difficult to gauge whether or not the tenant might be a right fit for your property. A reference and a background check does little to tell you how they are at home and a landlords' reference may not be the most credible, especially whilst the tenant is still in their property; if they are a bad tenant, their current landlord will be incentivised to lie to get them out of their property sooner. Below, you'll find a list of fourteen questions you can ask potential tenants to let you see whether or not they're suitable for your property.

Questions to ask tenants viewing your property

  1. When are you looking to move?
  2. Why are you moving?
  3. How many people are moving with you?
  4. Do you have any pets?
  5. Do you smoke?
  6. Are you employed? What do you do for work?
  7. How much do you earn?
  8. How long do you want to rent the property for?
  9. Do you have a months rent and deposit in advance?
  10. Do you have any references?
  11. Do you have a guarantor?
  12. Do you have any special needs that need to be considered?
  13. Can you tell me a bit about your lifestyle? What do you do in your spare time and on weekends?
  14. Have you ever been evicted or given an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO)?
  15. Do you have any questions or feedback?

By asking the above questions and delving a little bit deeper where appropriate, you should be able to get a better understanding as to whether the tenant is the right fit for your property.
