The Alan Boswell Group Difference

Alan Boswell Group - personal

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.

Service Options

Our company reference check is designed to give landlords peace of mind when entering into an arrangement with corporate tenants, combining financial analysis with information verification:

FAQs

  • For basic referencing you will get a pass or fail result. For the full referencing you will get the same outcomes, but for a pass you will also get an affordability factor for monthly rent.

  • A basic check is completed within a few hours during opening hours. A full reference is reliant upon responses from employers and previous landlords, so the process can vary in length.

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

  • Yes you can, although you will only have limited cover and higher excesses.

  • While it is best practice to reference your tenants, it is not generally a requirement of landlord policies.
