I’m sure you’ve all heard & used the phrase “you don’t get something for nothing”.
Well, this is also very true with regards to tenant referencing.

I received an email today (which was spam I might add) telling me how I can get a reference for as little as £6.95 +vat.
If you read on (which most people don’t tend to do) you will realise, as I did, that these companies can do this by offering discounts so they can capture your contact details and flog you their insurance policies.
Did you know that your name can be worth up to £20 to an insurance company?

Someone once told me, which is oh-so true; that anyone can buy a 49p hamburger but then they’ve got to eat it..!!
And, just like a 49p hamburger, a cheap reference will give you the same indigestion!!
With everything in this life you get what you pay for.

At LandlordReferencing we don’t believe you should buy your insurance/referencing packages together.
Nobody in the UK bar us offers a credit reference (with no yearly subscription), insurance coupled with a free lifestyle reference.

Because our mission is to work entirely for our landlords and letting agents to keep them safer, we believe that we should be entirely transparent about our costs.
All revenue is reinvested into sustaining and growing of our community of members. The more members we have, the more data we have on tenants, which improves our free service which protects your investment and more importantly your personal safety.

Lets face it, people fall for these sales ploys all the time in exchange for receiving “discounts.”
Tesco have stopped their buy one get one free deals as people have realised that it’s not buy one get one free; it’s actually buy two at half price, a great way to get you to buy two.

At you see what you get and you get what you pay for -. The best product at the best price.
