New housing minister announced
As part of Theresa May’s cabinet reshuffle we now have a new Minister for Housing; Gavin Barwell.
Replacing Brandon Lewis in the cabinet shakeup, the Croydon Central MP has joined the team at the Department for Communities and Local Government led by Sajid Javid.
“Looking forward to working with councils, housing associations, developers and investors to ensure we build the homes people need and deserve.
“And to working with the Mayor of London to ensure the continued success of our wonderful diverse capital – and that all Londoners share in it.”
At Tenant Referencing UK together we can prevent problem tenants from moving from property to property, causing the same damage to landlord’s incomes, investments and pensions.
With tenants constantly moving around, as a private landlord or letting agent how do you know that the next person that walks into your office or calls you isn’t someone who has just been been moved from another council or has run up thousands of pounds in rent default and/or property damage?
Quite simply YOU DON’T.
One of the biggest problems we have as landlords is that when these new people arrive in our areas we will not be able to check them out properly because they will have limited credit ratings, etc. The usual searches will be almost useless as most will not have had much credit anyway, so the only way is to take their last landlord reference – that is, if they provide you with it.
With so much legislation weighted in favour of the tenant; Landlords ask yourself this: WHO IS LOOKING AFTER YOU? … LRS, that’s who – click here to join our 160,000+ landlord community and start avoiding tenants like these today.
