More Tenant Screening in Little Canada

Jan 21, 2009 - 4:45 pm | By

The city of Little Canada, Minnesota is the latest in American Cities looking to mandate tenant screening for all apartment owners in their municipal area.  City Leaders are hoping the stricter tenant screening requirements will reduce the number of police related incidents and increase safety within the city limits, where half the residents live in rental housing. 

“We think better tenant screening … should lead to less calls for police service, better tenant management and safer neighborhoods,” said Hanson, looking over the file that contained police data on problem properties spanning five years.

The ordinance will possibly be implemented later this winter.  Property owners and rental managers should be aware that tenant screening tools are readily available on the Internet, such as credit history reports and evictions records.  An advanced technology screening tool, such as Corra Group Tenant Screening service ( will help landlords satisfy their new city ordinances as well as protect them from problem tenants.
