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.
Tenant referencing is not just about weeding out people who can’t pay the market rent, it’s also about finding those that don’t pay. Alan Boswell Group developed its tenant referencing service to address both concerns: we investigate financial commitments and history, validate personal information and check previous performance as a tenant leaving you in a great position to make an informed decision on your prospective tenants.
We also have a landlord advice hub that is full of useful information to help landlords and property owners find the advice and products needed.

If your tenant fails the referencing you have the choice to proceed, reference a guarantor or look for a new tenant(s).
