Our Tenant reference service, via HomeLet, provides a complete financial and employment background check. We undertake a full employment history check, current salary information, current and previous 3 year’s residential addresses, along with current and previous Landlord information where applicable. We carry out a full credit check in order to evaluate the Tenant’s credit performance. For peace of mind you will also have the option to take out Rent Protection with nil excess! For further details see the Rent Recovery Service section.
RIGHT TO RENT
We are obliged to carry out Right to Rent checks to ensure any tenant has the Right to Rent in the UK. Under Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014, a Landlord must not authorise an adult to occupy property as their only or main home, under a residential tenancy agreement unless the adult is a British citizen, EEA or Swiss national or has a Right to Rent in the UK.
"A few weeks ago a family tragedy placed me in a position where I urgently needed to find rental accommodation for myself and my wife. I therefore approached a number of Estate Agents, some were good and others were extremely rude and unhelpful. For example one of them failed to appreciate that if you are prepared to pay 2 years rent in advance, one's gross annual income is largely irrelevant. Another grilled me on my wife's disability implying that her disability might prevent me from gaining the tenancy I wanted (against the law by the way). Now the good - From start to finish Cherwell Property staff acted with a high standard of professionalism and consideration. They fully appreciated my wife's disability imposed limitations on my time and availability. Thank you Chris for visiting my home with important documentation. I was kept fully informed as the search for a property continued and WITHIN 10 DAYS I was given the keys to exactly the type of property I wanted. So, a big thank you to all the staff of Cherwell Property and may you attain the future success you so richly deserve."
