Tenant Information
  • paragraph

    We use an external, professional referencing agency who carry out certain checks on our tenants based on the information they supply and then provide us, the agent, with a detailed suitability report. This report is designed to assess and reassure the agent and the landlord of a tenant's suitability to the property they are applying for. These checks include a credit check, landlord reference and employment checks


    A tenants reference report may come back saying they need a Guarantor. It is important when you ask someone to stand as a Guarantor that they understand that they are legally liable for the rent, arrears and dilapidations caused during this tenancy, before they enter into the referencing process.
