- "What techniques do you use to find and approve the right Tenant for your MHP?"

We have tried various techniques.
We have a very specific procedure for Prospective Tenants including an Application Process for everyone 18 years old and older.
I was talking to my Husband and remembered a book that Dave Ramsey had written concerning 'hiring' the correct person for a Company.
I understand that we are not 'hiring' employees. However, some of the techniques for 'hiring' can also be used for 'approving' the correct Tenants.
