We have to rent our house out because we're moving to another city. Around here we have a really bad problem of Hispanic families doubling even tripling up in houses. One family will rent it but then they move more in with them. I personally know of 1 small 3 bdrm house with 11 people in it. I've had 2 Hispanic families come look at the house. One was supposed to be a family of 4, but 9 people showed. The other was worse. Supposed to be a family of 5, THREE vehicles showed up and we counted 13 people. We've talked to a couple of people we know who rents houses and they tell us that Hispanics are really bad, disregard the lease and trash houses.
I just don't want that. This is about protecting my property. But I feel so bad about it. What do I do? We're already broke and renting it out only cuz we can't afford to sell right now. We're struggling ourselves. How do I protect my house and not be prejudice against Hispanics.

I honestly wouldn't trust them if in your area they do that. It is protecting your home and property.

Race or back ground aside, you should always require a credit check from any possible renter. We have had renters too and have had pretty good luck with people who do not mind a credit check. We have had all races of renters and have not had hardly any problems with any of them. You make sure to have them understand the lease and everyone in the house has to be listed in on it. We have also used reputable property management companies and they are a good liaison to have.

I'd do a credit and background check. If there's a way to check if they're legal citizens of this Country, I'd do that too. Like I said, I 'm not sure if you can do that or not, but that would be a sure fire way to not rent to Hispanic families in your town without breaking the law.
