Ensuring you have the most appropriate Tenant living in your property is not only important, it is crucial;
- To ensure regular income is obtained
- To ensure the property is looked after as well as if you were living there
- The Tenants fit with both your and their timescale
The vetting process begins well before tenants make an offer and indeed before a prospective tenant even views.
Simon Miller & Company Lettings landlord questionnaire
Before the property goes live, you will have completed for Simon Miller & Company Lettings a landlord questionnaire. This provides us with vital information relating to the property itself, your wishes and wants and advises us of the rental period you are looking to secure (i.e. 6 months or 6 years). This allows us to match good quality tenants and saves a lot of time for you, us and also people taking their time to look when their circumstance may mean they were not even suitable in the first place.
During the registration with Simon Miller & Company Lettings, they will also be asked important questions such as;
When are they looking to move?
Employment & job title of persons looking to move in?
Explain the minimum income required to succeed the referencing process
Are they aware of any adverse credit (Bankruptcy, IVA, CCJ’s?)
How many children & their ages?
If and what pets they have?
Do they have any commercial or sign written vehicles?
By qualifying all persons at this early stage saves a huge amount of time and allows the process further down the line to accelerate quickly as all parties are well aware of their need to meet our criteria.
Any and all offers will be presented to you for your consideration. The information above is explained to you giving you and us an educated opportunity to accept the right Tenant for you. Once you have accepted an offer, the property is secured for the Tenant whilst they undergo referencing.
This process is expected to take no more than 10 days (8 working days). If referencing takes longer than this, we are within our right to remarket the property with immediate effect to avoid any further delay.
The referencing process is carried out by a third party called Rent4Sure.
Once the Tenant have completed their online application, Rent4Sure will carrying out the following extensive checks; a credit checks, a full reference and a final report.
