Thanks all - BPF /SH / IC for your advice. I shall closely follow them.

- Thanks to you Sir as well for your suggestions which extend the leasing thoughts further. As always , a part of your post goes above my head and I have to come back for a clarification :)

When you mention cylinders - you are referring to the lock cylinders I believe. I also know that locks can be re keyed by lock smith.

However isn't cylinder a part of the lock itself ? How can we keep the cylinders safe in a different location ? Kindly enlighten me on this.

Thanks.

Check their Social Media profiles too - FB and LinkedIn.

You will be surprised the crap they post there and expose themselves.

I know a guy in India whose house was raided by Income Tax professionals solely based on the show off he used to do on FB. That's the only way they came to know of his assets !

Hope the picture and the response answers your query.

With these locks and keys, the place that I occupy is still in the old system of things and I am still into cylinders and keys for our entry.

We have THREE entries to our place. One - The front entry. The second the side entry. The third the entry through the GARAGE. I wanted just one key to get to use on all the three doors. Having Glass for panels on Two of the doors, which brightens the door way, I got into the risk of exposing myself for break and entry. So, I introduced DEAD BOLTS into them. Now all of the cylinders operate with just ONE KEY.

The DEAD Bolt that I have introduced in my doors needs A KEY to open the door from BOTH THE SIDES OF THE DOOR.

So, I was able to introduce myself to the Locks with CYLINDERS and KEYS. Now I know a lot more about them and given a chance, I can also perform a locksmiths job. That is for another day.

I also cut my own keys at Walmart Key cutting stations. (For the Cars and also for the doors.)

Guys,

I am getting interest from potential renters .. Being the first time, unsure about something -

Should I require the SIN mandatory or make do with supplied credit report from Equifax / Trans Union.

Also 1st & last being good, should I insist on post dated cheques for the remaining months as some people express that they wish to do cash / email transfers.

Credit report from Equifax/TU can easily be faked by them. So you get the Credit Report, not them, with their SIN.

2 People can have the same name. So SIN is the best way to identify them.

Electronic transfer of money is fine. Its better if you PULL the money from them, than they PUSH money from their side. So get a VOID cheque from them and set up a direct deposit, where money is pulled from their bank account every month from your bank.

Stay away from Cash- No proof & lot of he said- she said.

Renting basement is technically illegal ... so no matter what paper you signed you will still be in hook.

Best simply go with new students... keep them for thier one or two term... they will move out get new students...

keeping student is most safe and easier process... yes but keep eye on them, they tend to get durty ... mainly kitchen and washroom. - try to find girls.

avoid locals and singles
