Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

We received the following from a tenant – he said he would move in with his brother and sister in law.
He had provided references:
1) Tax Return
2) Bank Statements
3) Landlord Contract
4) ID of him and his brother/sister in law who currently overseas
Verified his unique tax reference number which was incorrect. Bank Statements were addressed to the tenant, but noticed the bank account was in someone else’s name.
Called Landlord, but the name was incorrect.
We gave him six months contract and only two months in. His brother and sister in law has still not moved in.
I should have checked the references, but now what course of action is available.
I have a feeling he could be taking the property for illicit means, but have no proof at this stage.
