The general good practice of ‘always get referenced tenants’ is going to get harder given there will be many renters on the market now who will fail standard referencing, does anyone have any suggestions of how to spot reliable tenants?
Mind you I have always taken referencing with a pinch of salt, as over the years I have learned those perfectly good tenants sometimes fail referencing, and vice versa. I have had reference passing tenants who it’s evident their falsified/exaggerated income was not picked up by the referencing company, and equally, had excellent reliable tenants who didn’t earn enough, but who I took a punt on, who were clearly so grateful to secure a place they made sure they didn’t lose it.
With some peoples incomes so unreliable in the months ahead, does anyone have any tips?
