Why should I run a tenant credit check?

You need to ensure that you protect your property investment and reduce rental income loss from tenants that fail to pay on time or at all.

It’s important to remember that you will need written permission to perform a credit check on a potential tenant but the information and peace of mind it can provide is invaluable.
