Tennant Risk Assessment - Need Opinions

We have an applicant who had a foreclosure situation and was evicted from his foreclosure condo. Couple's ages in low thirties. Has a new baby < 1 yr. Both parents work, have stable jobs for 2-3 yrs. Current landlord of about 1 year says no late rent, and that they are easy tenants... We know evictions are bad, but in this case, should we be worried? Thoughts?

What about criminal history?  With my experience in the industry, I quickly learned not to judge a book by its cover!  If the rest of their credit lines are in good standing,and they have a clean criminal record, I wouldnt hang your hat on the foreclosure information.  You will be hard pressed to find an applicant that doesn't have credit issues in this economy!

(not sure if this will work, but here's an example: Anyway, the point is it helps you make more objective decisions regarding tenant feasibility... just a thought.
For what it's worth, I tend to agree with Tami.
