Credit references


Recommended Posts

In the past I have not carried out a credit check on tenants, but now realise that I should be doing this. Does anyone know where I can get this done and how much it costs, is it fair to charge the tenants for this (I would have thought so but I will follow standard practice to enusre that I am fair).

I have found this site that charges £24 per tenant:


They do offer a £6 service but only includes bankcruptcy, CCJ and tenant default search and does not include for 'exiisting credit data analysed' which I would have thought is quite important. The £24 service also verifies their employment, current landlord and ID.


Just found this site:


Which offers this check for £18.74 (if 5 or more checks purchased):
