In an ever-increasingly expensive rental market, we are seeing many landlords who wish to reference tenants themselves and carry out better referencing than they are currently getting. Many of these landlords just don’t understand the process and what they need to do or, in fact, want to do it! Letting agents are under pressure to reduce fees and the government (as in Scotland) are looking to abolish tenant fees altogether.
The simplest conclusion to this is for you to be able to carry out the referencing yourself and pass it onto your landlord or letting agent who can then authenticate it as valid and true.
At Tenant Referencing UK we have created the Referencing Passport especially for renters to help their landlord/letting agent overcome all of these problems with one swift package.
The Referencing Passport For Tenants is a totally unique tenant referencing concept that allows you to undertake the referencing process yourself at TenantReferencingUK. In a market where all tenants charges are being questioned and where fees are being scrutinised (and possibly even banned), you can simply obtain your referencing at Tenant Referencing UK, we can then authenticate you and provide your landlord with an legitimate, original report. The benefits to a letting agent using this system are that all they need to do is direct you to the website to carry out the referencing procedure. Once the referencing is complete we can send the completed reports to both you and the letting agent.
A Tenant Passport is truly the simplest and most cost effective way for a letting agent to get you referenced for a new tenancy, should the banning of agency fees be introduced in the future. Take a look here at what the passport can offer you: (What is a Tenant Passport). You can also download the tenant passport leaflet here: (Tenant Passport Leaflet).

MAINTENANCE & REPAIRS
The Maintenance and repair reporting area is where you can report maintenance repairs to your landlord. NLCE maintenance report system benefits:
☆ Creates a formal paper trail between you and your landlord/letting agent,
☆ Allows you to report any problems,
☆ Allows your landlord to reply and liaise with you, alongside a notification as to what time, date, requirements, etc.
It is important for both landlords and tenants to understand the need for a formal trail to prove that an issue was raised and that the landlord replied to the request and carried out the works within a suitable time, and to a professional standard. Landlords should be reminded that if a complaint is made by the tenant and the issue is not resolved the landlord will not be able to evict the tenant or issue a section 21 in accordance with the Deregulation Act 2015; no Section 21’s when there are outstanding complaints. This change is designed to address the problem of retaliatory evictions – time will tell whether it is successful. From 1st October 2015, if the following sequence of events occur, the landlord will not be able to serve a Section 21 notice for a further 6 months: Tenant notifies landlord of disrepair Landlord fails to respond within 14 days Tenant.
