Risks of accepting 12 months Rental Payment Upfront?Make Text Bigger
I would really appreciate advice from other landlords.
The letting agents who have carried out a tenant find for me on a number of occasions have found tenants who want to sign a 12 month AST. They are also wish to provide the full 12 months rent at the start of the tenancy!
Should I be concerned?
The agents initially decided not to carry out any reference checks based on the full rent being provided upfront but I have asked for a previous landlord reference and wondered if I should ask for guarantors as they are students.
Is there anything else I need to do or think about?
Many thanks for any suggestions or thoughts.
