Van Mildert prides itself on aiming to be the best tenant referencing company for you. When you’re letting a property it is vital that you know your tenants are in stable employment (or have another means to pay the rent consistently every month), that they have behaved appropriately in their previous tenancy/tenancies, and that there’s nothing suspicious or alarming that you need to know about them.
Van Mildert works on behalf of your letting agent to obtain a variety of reference for your prospective tenants – from a comprehensive credit report, employment reference, previous landlord reference, verified bank statements and so forth. From all of this information, we will provide your agent with a judgement on whether the tenant is likely to pay the rent on time on-going, and whether they are likely to cause a problem of any kind.
Tenant referencing ensures you chose the right tenant from the outset and eliminates future hassle and stress that could be caused if an unreliable tenant was to be selected. Van Mildert works to manage your tenancies, thus reducing the risk of rental arrears or damage to your property. With extensive experience in the field, we aim to give you peace of mind when letting your property so let’s work together to protect your properties and improve your profitability.
What do our tenant referencing systems check for?
Employment and Income Details
Whether your prospective tenant is employed, contracted, self-employed, retired or claiming benefits, we’ll verify their income and confirm the terms of their employment where applicable. For instance, by ensuring they aren’t coming to the end of their contract or a probation/trial period. By making these checks via our tenant referencing forms we will then be able to advise your letting agents as to whether or not the tenant will be able to consistently afford the rental fee.
Credit, Fraud and CCJ Checking
Our tenant referencing services also check the financial security and previous creditworthiness of your potential tenant. In order to do so, we run a series of thorough credit history checks which scan and expose any court judgements, bankruptcies, regular missed payments or other alarming facts that may come to light about a potential tenant.
Where the tenant has been living in rented accommodation previously, we’ll have frank discussions with their previous landlord(s) to find out if the rent was always paid on time and whether the property was maintained acceptably. This is often the most important stage of the process as it can reveal a whole host of problems which you’d like to know about before committing to a tenancy.
By referencing your prospective tenants through Van Mildert, your letting agent is exhibiting a high level of professional diligence and care and is ensuring that you have the best possible chance of enjoying a safe, predictable tenancy with your tenants.
This is a process which no reputable agent should operate without, and if in doubt you should ask your agent if they will be obtaining a comprehensive reference on your prospective tenants from Van Mildert Landlord & Tenant Protection.
