Tenant Referencing

How do we reference check potential tenants?

Stringent, in-depth checks

Our tenant screening process is very stringent and we always conduct full reference checks including employer reference checks and bank reference checks. We then advise the landlord on the outcome and only proceed with the tenancy on the approval of the landlord.

Aaron J Barclay also deals with a lot of international companies who are looking to relocate their key personnel. When a company pays an employee's rent that employee is clearly a valued member of staff. Therefore corporate tenants often have an added responsibility to maintain the condition of the property. Find out more about our Corporate Relocation Service.

Two-monthly inspections

We also conduct two-monthly checks on your property which highlight any current or impending issues that we feel you, the landlord, should be aware of.

Issues would include a tenant not ventilating a property properly and causing damp or a leaky tap - both of which could be the cause of considerable cost at a later date if not remedied immediately.

We believe we are the only agency that insists upon monthly checks. A full report, with colour photographs will be carried out and either emailed to you or uploaded to your online landlord area where you can also see online accounts, invoices and more.

We choose our tenants carefully and that is why we are able to offer a rent guarantee to all our landlords.

  • The agent from the branch is the best agent I have dealt with. My 2 buy to let properties have been handed over to AJB and I do not see any issues now good corporate tenants have filled the property.
