The Importance of Tenant Referencing
Ensuring you find the best tenants for your managed properties is important to ensure you maintain long-term relationships with your landlords. We all know what makes a good tenant but trying to determine who will meet the terms of their tenancy agreement, can be a very time-consuming task. Time which could be better spent on other areas of your business.
You want to be putting forward tenants that are financially able to pay rent on time, will not cause damage to your landlord's property and do not have a history of bad credit or poor tenancy references. Unfortunately, you cannot simply take someone on their word therefore the best way to ensure you know who you are putting forward to your landlords is through good quality referencing.
