Hi, Is it possible for an agent to only find you a tenant and reference them on your behalf – or do you have to be tied into using their AST too?
I have used an agent in the past but she insisted on using her AST and not mine (which seemed far more comprehensive and detailed for both me and tenant).
More emphasis on reference checking these days than ever so I’m nervous about doing this myself.
I can’t quite understand what checks need to be done.
What if a guarantor is needed – how is this documented and how is that agreed?
Do you need a solicitor involved?
How easy is it to actually pursue money owed down this route?
Not sure if having someone without a guarantor is actually easier?
