Why do I need a Tenancy Background Check?

For landlords, a tenancy background checks provide insight into the character of the person wishing to rent their property.
Some landlords may only let their properties to individuals with good credit history, for example. Good credit history shows that a tenant keeps on top of their bills and will, most likely, pay their rent on time.
Tenancy background checks can also verify the employment history of potential employees. If someone has lied about their income, he or she may not be able to keep up with rent payments. Confirming this in advance of a tenancy gives the landlord security that they have rented to someone who can afford the property.
Tenancy background checks and vetting can prevent a landlord from handing the keys to their property to those who are not going to pay their rent or could cause damage. Reduce the risk of inconvenience, rent arrears and damage to your property by instructing a background check.
