Nonetheless, developers and multifamily property owners need to adjust to changing demands from renters and shifts in demographics. Understandably, as many landlords and leasing agents are seeing more movement from renters, they are becoming more cautious in who they accept as replacement residents. Knowing how to screen tenants during COVID, in the middle of a federal eviction moratorium, can be a challenge. However, there are some key steps property owners and leasing agents can employ to make it easier according to Bryon.
