Each time a review is submitted, points are added based on the questions that are answered. These points are combined with those from all previous reviews. Their total points are then divided by the total points possible. The output from this becomes their score. For instance, if they have 85 points from a possible 100, their score is 85 and their grade is a B-.
Once the score is calculated (see above), the grade is determined based on something we all understand - common school grading scale:
|A+||96 - 100|
|A-||92 - 95|
|B+||88 - 91|
|B-||85 - 87|
|C+||80 - 84|
|C-||76 - 79|
|D+||74 - 75|
|D-||70 - 73|
|F||69 and below|

* Many substandard tenants move out of rented homes before a court hearing takes place and the case never goes forward or is dismissed.
* Some landlords encourage substandard tenants to move out of a property without involving the court.
* Tenants rarely file suits on substandard landlords.
* Most people pay for poor quality services and do not take legal action on service providers.

No! Professional landlords embrace this transparent exposure for two reasons:
1) As the saying goes, "The cream rises to the top!" and good landlords do also. When you shop online and see numerous positive reviews for a product and only one negative review you realize the negative one is an anomaly, ignore it, and purchase the product.
2) TenantTalk.net allows for you to challenge the tenant's posting and if it is proven to be invalid or questionable it will be removed. NO BLOGS ARE ALLOWED ON THIS SITE.
