4 more landlords have joined us today, insisting that their agents use our services.

One letting agent just said to me that she wasn’t going to use us because we’re too strict… ! ! ! ! ! !

So it would seem that Letting Agents now have the hump, because they won’t change!

So landlords, is our referencing too strict for you? ? ? Wink

The difference between most letting agents and self managing landlords is  a LL will do their best to get the best tenant possible and use the best referencing company (LRS of course) but some letting agents make more money out of bad tenant than they do with good tenants. The landlord will pay the bill if the tenancy goes wrong so some letting agents get paid to serve notices, arrange court papers, bailiff’s, carry out repairs and find new tenants. It’s a win win for some agents and the landlord always pay if the are appcentee landlords. They don’t have a choice pay up or have a empty property.

Thats why some letting agents think LRS is too strict but the good agents love LRS

Paul do not lower your standards we LL’s need you on our side and the decent people in all areas need you too. Keep up the good work.

I have just used you and it was just what i needed. I want tough referencing so that i get a good tenant .

I know so many landlords that have nightmare tenants because their letting agent did not do the job properly .

Please can we have some info on serviced rooms?  I am getting overwhelmed  with people from London who are enquiring about  very short term rooms in my HMO’s . They have well paid jobs and seem like they would make nice short term tenants but are being moved around a lot from city to city with their jobs.

I dont want to be a B&B (dont like cooking) or hotel but i dont mind putting people up short term.

It means i can keep an eye on my property .

Any advice is welcome

Paul. You be as strict as you like !!

I spoke to you on the phone last week about my court case. 

I will update you asap on the phone.  

Most of my tenants are diamonds 

I have just been dragged,  for the very first time in many years of being a landlord – through court,  by a very rough diamond tenant .I won by the skin of my teeth because of a very expensive and excellent solicitor !  He saved me from a 2K fake claim and court costs. 

The bad penny was my very first tenant years ago before i discovered LRS and i would NOT like to go back to the old “Barely bones referencing” 

I only just found out today that a list of bankrupt people is available to view and you can search tenants to see if they have been in court before.
