Benefits of tenant referencing

Satisfactorily referenced tenants offer a higher level of reliability for your letting agency chain. Even the most trusted tenants can feel the pinch from the tough economy, and your landlords probably can’t afford failed rental payments. Our tenant referencing helps mitigate these problems, while our Landlords Legal Expenses and Rent Guarantee cover ensures your landlords are not out of pocket.

Minimum tenant referencing requirement

To ensure the Landlords Legal Expenses and Rent Guarantee policy cover is in effect, we require the following minimum checks:

  • At least one credit reference and one employer reference must be taken in respect of each tenant, prior to the inception of the Shorthold Tenancy Agreement and such references must be satisfactory.
  • In the case of students or DSS tenants, a credit reference with a pass rating must be obtained from a recognised tenant reference company.
