Do all the people who feature on the tenant alerts get put on a data base that is accessible to Landlords? I cannot remember all the names from the areas my properties are in but would appreciate it, if, when a new tenant applies to live in one of my properties, I could at least initially search a data base to see if they have been flagged up in the past.I would then know I needed to contact you for details of last, or by this stage it might be last but one Landlord for a reference.

Hi Ruth,

Yes all the tenants that are sent out on tenant alerts are on the database for 5 years. The tenant alerts are sent in order to notify landlords and probably more important Agents who take new tenants every day that a tenant left there last landlord under bad circumstances, very recently and sometimes that day.

The data given to us by landlords and agents can take a day or so to get onto the systems because we make sure it is all correct and safe, however  a tenant alert takes priority  and is moved to the front so if a landlord or agent tells us about them we can tell you within 1 hour.

The best thing to do is if you are looking for a new tenant just jot down the ref on the alerts or look at them when you have got the new tenants name and if they are the same name carry out a search and if a full match comes up you can contact the previous landlord or agent who will give you the reference.

Tenant alerts can stop a bad tenant moving from one property to another within 1 hour of them leaving.

• 1st Always check your tenant alerts first.

• 2nd Carry out a lifestyle reference search on the site.

• 3rd Carry out you credit & Identity search on the site with Experian £16

and if all is ok then offer a tenancy thereafter. Any problems give us a call on 01934 645237
