    Best reference agent to use ?


    Im particularly interested in if a prospective tenant has any outstanding debts or financial problems, which is the best agency to use to check them out pls?


    Does this relate to your earlier thread?


      yup. I will do this and give him dates for payments. If he cant fulfil them then next!

        You could report the clear Covid breaches given the numbers of people going into the property ........ the local authorities are still working and attending (i work with them and other partner agencies as part of my job), and pandemic or not, not everything can close down, there are still vulnerable...

        An elderly couple used to live next door to a house I own. Up until recently there haven't been any issues. They were never talkative, liked to keep to themselves, didn't respond if I said hi, so I didn't/ don't know them well. Recently I think the elderly man may have died, he hasn't been seen for...

        I have been reluctant to do anything that might worsen the situation in respect of any hostility towards my tenants, and as there has been a death in the family at this neighbouring property. From what I have seen and heard today it seems there is some work going on inside the property and so its likely...

        It sounds like a nightmare, i have never smoked and would be really unhappy if my home smelt of fags ........ just as an aside, if the fag smoke gets in that easy i do not hold out much for your survival rate if there were a fire down there....... although you do appear to have a very good smoke detector...

        So, I have lived in my current property for nearly a year.

        Everything has been okay after a bit of a rough start. But this past week; the shop below me has someone new working there and they have taken up smoking indoors in the backroom.
        The room they are smoking in is directly below...

        Have you thought of the anti social behaviour officer in the local authority ? They are not just there for local authority tenants etc. I would also report the rubbish bags being thrown to the Police as this is also an offence. As you have said (and sadly all i expected) these are not the type of people...

        Has the Son's sister mentioned anything about '' rent '' ? I gather he intends to simply sit there, pay nothing, not give notice and wait it out ....... payment free living.

        My tenant has passed away and their son isn't leaving the property. Their tenancy runs out at the end of January. I knew the son was staying there as a carer for my tenant. The son's sister told me that the son would not sign the tenancy. The son was looking after the utility bills and had them in...

        My gut feeling on this one without any further investigation would be a big fat NO, there is too much of a 'story' to tell and that alone would ring many alarm bells for me, he maybe an ok chap but i would not take that chance where there are lots of other tenants to pick from out there.

        I have a potential tenant. He says he has recently broken up, so for the past 3 months living in a budget hotel.

        He is self-employed. Not much in the way of savings.

        He did own a home, but it was in the wife's name, which they bought in 2005. He is making no claims, as his...
