Choosing the tenant

We never forget that the property belongs to you, therefore the final choice is always yours.

We will submit tenants applications and any additional supporting information to assist you with selecting the tenant you wish to proceed with. Some of our Landlords like to meet applicants before they make a final decision and that we fully support.

Once an applicant has been selected we commence a very thorough and rigorous refencing process including in depth credit checking and profiling along with confirmation of employment / earnings and previous Landlord reference if the applicant has rented before.
