Hi,

I have a 2 bed house to rent and have been contacted by various letting agents. One of the agents has founds some tenants for me who have left a holding deposit with the letting agents.

The agents will carry out all the referencing and inventory as well as check in.

Should I (and can I) ask for copies of the references and also copies of passport/other ID for my owns records as the landlord?

Should I take out a rent guarantee policy and if so can you recommend any companies?

Can I ask the letting agent to act as a guarantr for the tenant?

Will the letting agent automatically notify Inland Revenue of the tenancy and rent paid to me?
