"All Landlords want to know that a Tenant is likely to pay the rent, is unlikely to damage their property or be a nuisance and that he/she will leave at the end of the tenancy".... if only it were as simple as that?

Letting property is becoming a risky business, with increasing exposure to habitual fraudsters, identity theft and other potential issues. Tenant background checks, tenant screening or simply as we describe it, tenant verification helps to ensure the desired outcome of a successful let.

Tenant verification is more than a credit check it’s an expert and impartial third party verification of suitability of a tenant to rent property (we make the judgements & provide you with the information on which it is based). You pay for sophisticated searches designed for landlords to give the best possible indication of identity and propensity to default.

Our tenant screening includes authentication of the identity of the tenant and a risk score from a fraud perspective. This significantly reduces the risks of Landlords Identity theft by the tenant.

LetRisks tenant verification has been developed in conjunction with Experian using the latest technology and analytical techniques to obtain and match data from the most extensive set of records available in the UK. As part of our normal process we uncover hidden facts about potential tenants that you could otherwise be blind to, however good a judge of character you might be... and it’s not expensive when you consider the complexity of what you get.

Before you can start a tenant verification check, as data controllers ourselves we need to verify "who" you are and that you agree to our Tenant Referencing Terms & Conditions which require that you comply with the Data Protection Act and obtain appropriate consents from the persons who you are referencing. Please Register so that we can determine your access to the secure system.

Although we offer Instant Reports which give an immediate view on suitability, we recommend our Comprehensive tenant reference (tenant verification report), which we believe provides the best private tenant screening and tenant background check available in the market. These return an Interim Report based on complex searches of Experian databases straight back to the user, followed by a Final Report when information has been obtained from referees such as previous landlords, employers or pension providers, normally within 24 to 48 hours. Comprehensive tenant references provide detailed information where available, whereas Standard tenant references return only a decision on suitability.

We are dependent on referees responding to us to complete the tenant screening process however hard we chase.... you can assist by asking your prospective tenants to request their referees to respond promptly on our contact.
