Is it not time to have a Good an BadTenants Register to Protect Landlords?
If we have a duty to provide a high standard of accommodation and be responsible for deposits, then surely there should be a better selective process to find worthy tenants.
I would be interested to find out if any other Landlords feel the same and if any association would be prepared to start up such a scheme.
I feel that this type of system would be win win for both Landlord and Tenant. Rents may not need to rise to facilitate loses. Tenants on this system with a good record may not need to pay the standard deposit. The Landlord would have security in the knowledge that they have a blue chip tenant, peace of mind and no added administration costs or charges.
One would think this would be a great marketing angle for an association, as I am sure, most professional Landlords would use this service.
