How do you select a tenant for my property?

One of the more common questions we are asked by property investors, especially first time investors, is, “How do you select a tenant for my property?”

Some express concern that we may choose someone unsuitable or that they may not have any say in it whatsoever. Rest assured we don’t just put anyone in your property. We have a very thorough tenant selection process in place, as outlined below.

All prospective tenants who apply for a property with our company are required to complete a detailed application form and provide employment and rental references together with solid points of identification, such as a driver’s license and passport. We will not process any application that fails to meet these criteria.

All applications are checked thoroughly. This includes making checks against several credit checking agencies and tenancy tribunal records to determine the prospective tenant’s credit history.

Once our detailed screening processes have been completed, we contact you to advise the outcome. You have the freedom to be involved as much as you wish in the final selection process, however we have found that most landlords prefer to leave that process in our capable hands.
