I'm still pretty new to this whole landlord thing. One of my units has been empty going on 3 months now. I have a family interested but they currently live with family so I have no previous landlord to call. Their income is self employment and social security. The husband has some pretty serious stuff on his criminal from 15 to 20 years ago but he was honest about it before I did a background check. He said they are struggling to find a place because of his background and they need someone to take a chance on them. I'm just wondering what other landlords would do in my shoes right now. Take a chance because I should fill the unit? Or turn them down because of the background check and the lack of income they can show me?
