We have just received notice that one of our tenants is leaving us and so (having used agents before but now following Mark’s guidance on self marketing) I was just in the process of starting the re-marketing process (well how else would you want to spend Easter Sunday???) when a thought occurred.
Once we have a short list of prospective tenants who are genuinely interested, and who we would entertain living in our property, would it work if we credit checked several people at once – on the understanding that they would then own the credit check (to use elsewhere if they were not the successful applicant)?
Having been in the position last year where our chosen applicant failed the credit check, leaving us back at Square One just days before we’d hoped she would move in, we are keen to avoid a repeat of that situation if at all possible
And then … if that would work/be legal how much do others pay/charge for a credit check + 6 months rental insurance (which we pass on to tenants) – so I guess I’m asking much should we ask those 2-3 interested people to cough up at the viewing if they wish to proceed (that should sort the men from the boys too methinks)?
