Standards vary greatly in the industry. At Lauristons, not only does our brand attract the best quality tenants with highest standards, we also follow a strict vetting process we have honed over many years, which is vital for a safe, long-term let. As members of ARLA and The Property Ombudsman, we adhere to strict codes of practice by using a professional referencing company to validate the affordability, suitability and authenticity of prospective tenants and the references supplied. In addition to this, in line with recent legislation, our lettings team are trained to conduct ‘Right to Rent’ checks in accordance with Home Office codes to verify the identity and status of residency of all our tenants. Only when these two processes have been completed can we be confident in disclosing our findings in a professionally prepared report so that our landlords can make an informed decision when it comes to who is moving into their property.
