I have always found it wise to bring along a "friend" when dealing tenants unless I know them well. Sometime the second person is enough to defuse a bad situation, sometimes they can serve as a good witness or at least call for help if things go wrong. And I'm a big guy with no worry's but why take the chance.

The easiest way is to tell your renter to go to the nearest RCMP station and file a report and then give it to you. It will cost about 30 dollars I think. Fastest and easiest.



I don't usually do a criminal check, if I feel i have too...this is a pass for me, but phone the local RCMP.

they have all the forms.



The other method is to check eviction notices on tenants at the court of queens bench. You can do this for a small fee , per name search.

Generally free to get a criminal record check (for yourself) if it is for volunteering. Perhaps, in addition to renting a suite they could put in a few hours in the neighbourhood?
