Tenant searches are an important part of verifying a tenant's
identity and also their credit history. Conducting a search can
help private landlords and letting agents protect themselves from
problematic tenants and non-payment of rent.
Luckily if you are looking to search tenants'
credit histories and collect references it can now be done in a few
simple clicks - gone are the days of writing to the banks and
awaiting reference letters to drop through the letterbox - enter
Lettingref. Lettingref provides the ability to
conduct a tenant search online - all you need is the tenant's
details, past address history, past landlord and employer
information (don't worry, we provide you with a form for your
tenants to fill out so you have all the information you need) to
complete the check.
So what are we searching for?
Lettingref provides both sides of the tenant search service, a
full and fast credit score and FREE tools that enable you to
conduct a reference search as well.
It is vital to check a tenant as thoroughly as possible
if you are going to rent a property as there is no guaranteed
indicator to say who will be a responsible tenant. There are key
things to look out for though; good credit history demonstrates
financial responsibility, if a tenant has shown to pay past bills
on time they're more likely to pay their rent on time. Keep your
eyes peeled for evidence of late payments, court judgements or
bankruptcies. Fully reference your tenants past landlord
and employer adding a human element into the process, ensure all
the information the tenant has given you can be verified and
nothing is being hidden.

Lettingref provides all the tools you need in one place so you
