Tenant Referencing for Landlord Rent Guarantee Policies

Tenant Referencing is a requirement of Landlord Rent Guarantee & Legal Expenses policies.
However, whether you intend to take out one of these policies or not, it is vital, particularly in these times, that you thoroughly reference any potential tenant(s).

You will need the tenants' full names, date of birth and current address and if at their current address for less than 6 months, their previous address also. Bear in mind that if a person's name appears on the Assured Shorthold Tenancy then they are regarded for legal purposes as a Tenant.

Documents required for tenant Referencing
1. Identification from the tenant, containing a clear verified photograph, such as a passport
2. Either a utility bill showing existing address or a bank statement
3. Credit check that is clear of CCJ’s, bankruptcies & indicating confirmation of residency
4. Confirmation of employment – a written employers’ reference on company letter headed paper confirming your tenant’s permanent and current employment and that their salary is at least a multiple of 2.5 of the tenant’s rent (the documents must be no more than one month old from the start of the tenancy)

Other Important Information
You must ensure that you deal with the tenancy security deposit in the manner required by the Government - either insured or in the Government Tenancy Deposit Scheme. You should ensure that the tenant(s) are NOT given access to the property until you have cleared funds for both the initial deposit and the security deposit. This is a legal requirement of most Rent Guarantee policies. In the case of such policies, you will not be required to show any of these documents before purchasing the insurance, but you will be required to produce all the above in the event of a claim.

Who can reference your tenants?
If your tenants are professional tenants in full-time employment and meet the 4-Point Check then a basic credit check from any UK referencing agency that is licensed by the Financial Conduct Authority is satisfactory.

What about prospective tenants with inadequate income?
If any prospective tenant's income is NOT at least 2.5 times their share of the rent, then a Guarantor may suffice. See below for requirements.
