Manitoba Landlords Can Make Sure You Rent To The Good Good Tenants Out There By Running Credit Checks

Experienced and successful Manitoba landlords know the importance of renting to good tenants.

After all, you have bought and prepared a great place to live with you rental property. Many Manitoba landlords were tenants ourselves at one point, or we have friends and relatives who rent now, and we know how good tenants appreciate a good landlord and a safe, affordable, well-maintained rental property 

We also know how important it is for tenants to have a great landlord!

What Makes A Great Landlord?

A great landlord is just like most of the readers here. We have invested a lot of our savings into a rental property. We maintain it well and want to make it as pretty as possible.

We hope to find great tenants who will live in our rental property and be happy and appreciate the property and us, as landlords, who have invested a lot of our hard earned money to create the property.

Landlords Keep Getting Ripped Off Bad Tenants

The stories keep coming. Tenants come in, and either don’t pay rent or trash the property.

This lead many landlords to give up. They just give up or look for a better place to invest.  We know of a case where a couple of Brandon landlords sold and became Newmarket Ontario Landlords and have achieved great financial success.

Did You Run Proper Tenant Screening Including a Credit Check?

Very few Manitoba landlords run credit checks and proper tenant screening on their potential tenants before handing over the keys.

Are they too trustful? Yes. You need to be very cautious and know who you are renting to. You need only to view what the situation is for Ontario Landlords to realize you need to screen carefully.

How Can Great Landlords Find Great Tenants?

A credit check will show you the financial history of a potential tenant.

Do they pay their bills on time? Have they not paid someone before? It’s a key tenant screening check!

Most Manitoba Landlord Don’t Screen Tenants And Don’t Run Credit Checks

This is the sad reality, so who is to blame when landlords rent to bad tenants? A Winnipeg landlord said she just trusts what a tenant says. She sold her rental after a bad tenant ripped her off.

July 6th, 2012


What’s the Story?

A tenants who rented properties from tow Winnipeg landlords is now speaking out about what she claims were terrible conditions in her former rental property.

Any Details?

The former tenant, Joan Ross, states she rented a house located at 270 Tecumseh St. from Kulijinder and Navdeep Randhawa.  She says the own and manage more than 40 properties in Winnipeg.


Ross says the house had many maintenance issues, including structural, plumbing and electrical problems.

Anything Else

Oh, she says the house also had bedbugs.

What’s Next?

Ross says even after calling the landlord “five and six time” nothing was fixed.

So Why Did She Move There and If Things Weren’t Fixed Why Not Move Out?

There was no comment on this.

Anything Else about Kulijinder and Navdeep Randhawa?

Yes.  A  second rental they own at 495 Dufferin St. was actually called “uninhabitable” by the Winnipeg and Manitoba officials.

One of the former tenants said the place has rotten floor board, a shoddy furnace, and a bad water heater.

Former Tenant Means He Also Moved Out?


What Else Does Ross Have to Say?

Ross has now moved to a social housing co-op.  She is angry her last landlord is still in business, calling her a “slum landlord” who “takes advantage of people living on disability and on welfare.”

Who Don’t People on Disability or on Welfare Be More Careful of Where they Move To?

That is the subject for another post.

A bylaw officer for the city of Winnipeg bylaw officer stated the city is going to be more “proactive.”
