What is tenant referencing?

Tenant referencing is the process of conducting a pre-tenancy assessment on a prospective tenant, company or guarantor. This usually involves reviewing the tenants credit file. Their credit file will show any adverse information such as County Court Judgments (CCJs), bankruptcies, liquidations or Individual Voluntary Arrangements (IVAs). We may contact the tenant's current landlord or letting agent to see how they have performed during their current tenancy. We may also contact their employer or accountant to assess their financial situation. If retired or in receipt of benefits then we may also ask them to supply supporting evidence of their income sources.

Why should I carry out tenant referencing?

Before agreeing a tenancy with any new prospective tenant, you should always carry out all necessary background check. These checks will ensure that they are who they say they are, are credit worthy and can afford to pay the rent.

Our pre-tenancy assessments can highlight if the tenant has any active or satisfied CCJs or adverse credit history. They can also establish financial suitability which ensures that they can let the property without overstretching themselves.

Carrying out these background and due diligence checks are vital before accepting a new tenant or their guarantor. If the tenant usually pays their bills or rent late (or doesn't pay them at all) then you may wish to avoid offering them a tenancy altogether.

In some situations, it may also be mandatory for you to reference tenants using a licenced referencing company. We're licenced to carry out these checks for insurance, to satisfy terms of a buy to let mortgage or for landlord licensing.
