New Tenant Online Referencing System Launches!

Risk Management Specialist, Leaseguard Ltd, is moving forward in 2012 with the launch of their new Tenant Online Referencing Service for both existing and new agents.

Veronica Allison, Operations Manager at Leaseguard, commented "We pride ourselves in providing a tailored service to our agents and have developed this facility as a result of feedback received."

Leaseguard Ltd has worked in tandem with their agents to develop an efficient, yet still personal, Tenant Online Referencing Service. From the feedback they received from their agents Leaseguard Ltd learned that their agents would save more time if the tenant could fill out application online. Veronica commented "Our Leaseguard elves have worked hard over the past few months to ensure that the system lives up to the requirements set out by our agents."

In support of their new Tenant Online Referencing Service, Leaseguard Ltd worked with leading credit information expert, Equifax, to enhance the application process for their agents. Equifax credit data is playing a key role in enabling the team at Leaseguard to verify the identity and credit status of an applicant as swiftly as possible so that agents do not experience delays in their decision-making process. The Equifax data is also crucial in ensuring that only the most suitable tenants are accepted by agents.

"We chose to work with Equifax because they offer the best quality consumer credit data solutions for the Leaseguard Tenant Online Referencing Service" advised Veronica.

She also went on to add "Credit information plays a vital role in checking that tenants are who they say they are and that they will be able to pay their rent.  We are confident that the Equifax data will give our agents the best possible risk management support."

Leaseguard Ltd suggest any agents who would like to try their new Tenant Online Referencing system simply contact their Sales & Marketing team on 0845 345 1705 or email

Do I really need insurance?

"It's just another added expense…" or "I don't think I really need Insurance" are phrases our Insurance Team hear on a daily basis! Nobody likes to pay out for insurance but it can be a safety net should the worst happen!


Landlord Insurance

Some Landlords fail to have this in place and are shocked when something goes wrong!

What would you do in the event of your tenant maliciously damaging your property, if the roof was damaged during a storm or if your tenant made a claim against you after injuring themselves in your property - do you have the resources to make the necessary repairs and protect yourself from liability? A suitable Landlord Insurance policy could prevent you from having the headache of what to do!

Tenants Contents Insurance

Our Insurance Team often hear "I don't need a policy - my Landlord's policy covers my belongings!"  This is a common misconception amongst tenants - their Landlord's policy covers their Landlords and only their Landlords property and contents.

In the event of you accidentally damaging fixtures and fittings in your rented property could you afford to pay the Landlord for any repairs? Or if your bag was stolen out side of the property would you be able to replace the contents? You cannot claim for these on your Landlord's Insurance policy - you require your own, specialist Tenants Contents Insurance policy.

How can I protect my investment?

With some experts predicting last month that rising rents could lead to more arrears and with the financial world still looking shaky it would appear that these forces may have an affect on the buy-to-let sector.

Can you afford to lose rental income in this economic climate and how do you protect yourself and your investment from such external forces?

Tenant Referencing

Tenant Referencing is the first line of defence in protecting your investment from uncertainty.

There is no arguing that the housing market is currently in the Landlord's favour with potential tenants scrambling to rent properties; in order to sort the wheat from the chaff it is important you carry out comprehensive tenant checks. Once the tenants are in your property it can be extremely difficult to get them back out again if they are problematic. We've heard plenty of horror stories from landlords who did not carry out the proper checks beforehand.

Don't let yourself be caught off guard  simply call our expert, friendly Referencing Team on 0845 345 1705 or email them at
