nicest landlord said: Posted on: 11/10/2018 21:51

In June I turned down an applicant because the glowing landlord reference given over the phone did not sound convincing. The intriguing thing was they gave me the true name of the building owner for where they lived.

I looked the owner up and left a message on his work answerphone. Today he rang me to say that the property had been illegally sublet and the tenant has now trashed the flat and left a pile of rent arrears.

Clearly the girl applying for my house was not the real tenant but a sub let. She faded away when I asked to see the tenancy agreement...
