Tenant Referencing for Landlords

The success of a residential property investment hinges on people.

Landlords can find the perfect house or flat, in the best location and at a good price, but their investment will only succeed if the tenants pay their rent. With property requiring very substantial outlay, tenant referencing is absolutely essential, and Alan Boswell Group has a full range of great-value services to help landlords find the right tenants for their investments.

We offer three different referencing packages, all at very affordable rates.
