Living next to inconsiderate neighbours can be a nightmare, but letting to bad tenants can prove costly, especially when issues, which are simply out of your control, take a turn for the worse. And there are very few things worse for a landlord than a bad tenant.
If a tenant is not looking after the property or regularly failing to pay their rent on time, the experience can really make a landlord’s life unhappy.
While measures such as credit checks and tenant referencing can minimise the chances of letting a property to bad tenants, there are no guarantees that what may appear to be a perfect occupant may turn out to be a tenant from hell.
As one of the UK’s leading suppliers to the letting industry, Rent4sure provides a comprehensive range of services and specialist products, including credit checks, full references, company references, a ‘know your customer’ service, rent protection, legal expenses insurance, tenants liability insurance, and landlords insurance, all providing first class support to the letting industry through an online platform.
“Our innovative, cloud-based platform is now considered to be one of the most advanced, cutting-edge and intuitive platforms in the industry, thanks to the fact that we, unlike many of our competitors, have our own in-house IT department, with several developers working on our products at any given time, said Jack Webb-Heller, IT director at Rent4sure.
The company, which works with more than 30,000 tenants a month, generates most of its business from tenant references, but it also offers a range of insurance products that appeals to buy-to-let landlords, including rent protection and legal expenses insurance, tenancy liability insurance, and landlords building and contents insurance.
“As a specialist provider to the letting industry, agents and landlords can rely on us for advice, opportunities and support. It’s what we’re here for,” Webb-Heller added.
