Landlord Secure which is partnered with EQUIFAX thinks that Landlords and agents may sometimes assume that all reference checks are the same and contain the same information, but that’s not always the case.

Getting the right tenant at the outset is not rocket science, however assessing a tenant varies between referencing companies. Landlord Secure whilst accessing the tenant’s ability to pay going forward using data linked to the tenant including number of credit accounts in current use, also look at the tenant’s past commitments and the ability to pay . Specifically, CCJ’s, Bankruptcies & IVA’s will alert Landlord Secure that a tenant has had issues maintaining credit previously. If a Guarantor is required Landlord Secure will issue a report on the Guarantor for FREE (with every comprehensive check).

Identity Validation is also important when accessing a tenant’s application. ID theft is on the increase and it’s not just via the Internet. Landlord Secure validates a tenant’s identity using the power of Equifax as well as cross-checking many different databases.  This links and verifies the tenant to their address using their credit profile as well as many other different variables. Landlord Secure also validates the tenant’s bank account through their Account Number and Sort-Code ensuring the details submitted do really relate to the applicant and they haven’t committed ID theft. This service enables the agent and/or Landlord to be confident that the details they are using to collect rent are actually viable and accurate.

But what happens it the tenant has unexpectedly left?
