Once all tenants (or their guarantors) have passed referencing with our partners at Rent4sure, your tenancy becomes eligible for rent guarantee insurance. This covers you against non-payment of rent and legal expenses incurred should you have to evict your tenants. For more information on rent guarantee insurance, select the property for which you have found tenants and press the 'Contact me' button – a member of the Rent4sure insurance team will be in touch.
Our friends at Rent4sure – the leading tenant referencing service in the UK – will carry out the referencing. Just complete the form below and call us if you need any assistance in completing the order. More information on why tenant referencing is important can be found by following more info.
Our Full Reference includes all the features of a Credit Check, plus full Income and previous Landlord / Managing Agent references. The Income Report provides confirmation of multiple sources of income, bonuses(guaranteed or non-guaranteed), savings, employment contract dates, and a personal declaration as to whether or not their employer finds the applicant honest, reliable, and trustworthy. The Previous Tenancy report provides confirmation of the rent they paid, the condition they left the property in, any arrears, and whether or not the Landlord would re-let to the applicant.
Essentially, an inventory is a listing of all the contents of a property and a record of the condition of each item, as well as the condition of the property itself. An inventory is designed to help keep track of the condition of a property and any furniture, fixtures, fittings and white goods before a tenant moves in and when they leave, so it can be made clear what damages, if any, need to be paid for by the tenant and what could be considered fair wear and tear.
Any deposit protection scheme will want an inventory as evidence of the property’s condition if there are any disputes over the return of the deposit at the end of the tenancy.
