  • Credit Check

    In the process if letting my flat and wanted some advice about how people vet their potential tenants?

    Previously, I asked for a character reference from the tenants employer. All was well however i'd like to tighten up this time.

    As a general rule, what should I be looking for?

    Also, is there any way I can do a credit check through an agency like equifax, is this worthwhile / expensive? Also, if the applicant is retired, I obviously can't get an employers ref.

    Any guidance appreciated.

    Do the £30 Tenantverify check - link on this site. Written refs can be worthless. I had 3 glowing character refs and my tenant did not pay rent and left owing over £2000.
