Do BAD Tenants Target Private Landlords?

Do bad tenants target Private Landlords?  

In short, yes they do.  It’s not to say that privately managed properties only attract a poor pool of tenants to choose from.  But without a doubt, bad tenants can and do target privately managed properties.

The key reasons for this are:

Little to zero screening of the Tenancy Application including no credit checks. A Tenant with a bad credit history is never going to waste their time applying through a Property Management company as they know they will instantly fail to meet the Tenanting criteria once the credit check is run.
