What if I don’t have it?

Maybe you’ll be lucky, and it will all be fine, but maybe whoever moved will be a nightmare tenant, unable or unwilling to pay, or not paying on time. 

Prospective tenants are very often strangers to you – and would you leave such a valuable asset in the hands of someone you really knew nothing about? Professional tenant referencing checks will let you know a lot more about a prospective tenant and their suitability for renting.

What if I don’t have it?
