Enhance your management service
Even the best of tenants can experience sudden changes in their financial circumstances, which could impact their ability to pay your landlords their rent. Although referencing provides an insight into a tenant's current situation, it cannot predict the future. A lost job, relationship breakdown or other changes in personal circumstances of your tenant can ultimately affect their ability to pay your landlord their rent. In the unfortunate situation that this arises, this could put a serious strain on your relationship with that landlord.
