Referencing

Every tenant over the age of 18, entering one of our properties must be referenced to ensure they can meet our criteria e.g. affordability of the rent. Once the application paperwork has been completed and the relevant documentation proof provided the referencing process will be initiated.

All of our references are done by a company called Rent Shield Direct. The reference procedure will look at the following:

  • A Credit Assessment
  • Employment History
  • Proof of Residence

 

Damage Deposit

A damage deposit is taken to protect the landlord from damage to the property which falls outside of normal wear and tear. The money is taken at the beginning of the tenancy and registered with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) for your protection. The money is fully refundable, however should there be disputes upon the final inspection that cannot be rectified it can be taken to The Dispute Service. The Dispute Service is a mutual party and will look at all evidence before deciding what amount will be deductible, if any, to the landlord.

 

Guarantor

If your reference comes back from Rent Shield Direct that we require a guarantor, this simply means that your credit assessment has not met out criteria therefore we need someone to guarantee that we will receive the rent.

This person can be a friend but is usually a relative and must earn in excess of £21,000pa. They will be referenced and will then be held liable if rent is not paid to us.
