Are you looking for a rented apartment? You rummaged through a number of online deals, contacted the relevant landlords, and whoa! All of them rejected you. So, what is wrong with you? You aren’t a criminal. You are well-behaved and decent. You are sure nobody would speak ill of you. Your past landlords had no major issues with you apart from the fact that you were late in paying your monthly rentals a couple of times.
So you thought the last factor wasn’t that important? “But, you paid your rentals albeit a bit late,” you would argue. But, this matters a lot in the eyes of a potential landlord. Even if you have no criminal background and behave your best with everyone, but are slack when it comes to paying rentals, your score is lowered when it comes to being a good tenant. After all, landlords hire their homes for the sake of money.
