We recently had a tenant who has got into financial difficulties. When we took him on, the agent told us he was employed by an international bank and earned 80K a year (no problem!). It turns out he is self employed, mainly working for one bank on a specific project that has now come to an end.

My question is what is the norm that should be expected by agents for tenant referencing? Are there standards laid down anywhere that I can expect?

Advise appreciated.
