I posted this to my Cashflow Board Game Group and though you would also be interetsed.

Last night a Google Search saved my wealth!

I was referencing a new tenant yesterday and he had ticked no to CCJs and Criminal Convictions. He seemed a nice chap drove a nice car owned a nightclub in the town and a fashion shop. I referenced him on and carried out a detailed reference – Just £12 (bargain!) for a credit search and a lifestyle search – this finds out if he’s ever been reported by his Landlord for leaving without paying the rent or for being a great tenant.

I entered his details and he came back with a CCJ. Ok not ideal but people sometimes have them and providing they get satisfied and a guarantor or pay rent in advance they may be ok.

Next step Google

I searched his name and his address and searched both separately.

“A drugs gang  £4.8m …of high purity cocaine”

XXX admitted permitting premises to be used for the production of cannabis”

So never underestimate the power of a Google search. No he didn’t get the house.

Be careful out there!

Something I always do and have done and have recommended doing so for a long time. The power of Google.

CCJ’s can be checked here
