    Tenant Checks

    Hello there

    I’m moving out of a flat I own and would like to rent it out on a long term AST to a professional working tenant.
    What information should I request from interested tenants.
    I want to be assured that they will be good rent paying tenants living in my accommodation.
    Should I run a credit check too? If so, let me know a good website for this and what I should look out for in these checks.
    Thank you for any help


    RLA and NLA have tenant checkers.

    Assuming you've not been a landlord before humbly suggest you join RLA or NLA and do their landlording courses. They will be cheaper (time, £££) than ignorance- which I sadly know about having started, thinking I knew things, made expensive mistakes, been learning since.

    And see here...

    Are you in England, Wales, Scotland?

    Get the place valued NOW by a couple of agents - once you move out you are liable to CGT on increases...
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


      What artful says.
      There are lots of legal requirements now for landlords, with potentially hefty penalties if you get things wrong.


        What Credit refs would you expect to provide if renting your Property?
        Join NLA/RLA as advised
