Tenant credit & Referencing what does it include?
All of our tenant reports include a linked address search. Why are linked address searches important?
If tenants move frequently (or try to hide their address history) there is a real risk you will not find any court enforced debts that may exist such as CCJs, Court Decrees, IVAs or bankruptcies. Linked address searches will help prevent this happening.
All AFS tenant reports are provided using Creditsafe, all purchases are subject to agreeing our terms, details here: Terms of service.
