They probably think so, given that they're people.
Don't get me wrong, I completely understand the frustration with arbitrary and seemingly pointless hoop-jumping requirements - but having been on both sides of this equation I also understand why people tend to do this sort of thing.
What do you think would be a good way for landlords to reassure themselves that you will be a good tenant?
For me personally? Talking to my current landlord about how I've used this place, and possibly my manager to verify my employment status and reliability should be plenty, and I'm fine with that. I'm also fine with a credit check.
For people without that rental history? Then go for the personal references and I'd suggest possibly an interview, along with the credit check.
Whatever a landlord does though, investments are risky, and one of the risks of investing in residential property is dodgy tenants.
