Don't sign a lease with the first applicant who comes along. You could end up with problems that would have been avoided with a thorough initial inquiry into an applicant's background. Before signing a lease, you should know how many people are applying to live in your rental, whether there are pets, when a tenant hopes to move in, and other background information. Get to know potential tenants the before making a rental decision.
