Online PR News – 17-December-2009 – – The online tenant screening application, LettingRef.co.uk has reported great success in 2009 and has seen the evidence in a recent customer survey taken from LettingRef users across the UK.
LettingRef is an online tenant screening application that provides tenant credit checks and referencing which is cost effective and fast. Tenant vetting and screening protects landlords and letting agents from rogue tenants and helps them find out the details they need to accept a new tenant who will pay on time and look after their property investment. It is the most important step taken when renting out a property, which is why it is essential to use a provider that is trusted and designed for your industry.
In a recent customer survey LettingRef found that 100% of users had found the site ‘easy to use’. This significant positive response helps in what is becoming a very competitive market.
“We are delighted with the responses of our valued customers and are excited that our system has proven to be so easy to use. It was always our aim to make things faster and more efficient for our clients“ says Miles Gilham of LettingRef . “In 2010 we are set to introduce new insurance products to our customers and many more exciting developments. We continually develop LettingRef to keep it the easiest system to use and we will strive to get just as positive feedback this time next year!”
LettingRef also reports that 73% of LettingRef users use the free online previous landlord and employer referencing system from their account. LettingRef offers any new sign-up access to free tenant referencing. The system is a simple email survey, which is sent to the chosen referee. The referee will receive an email, click on a link and then fill out an online survey about the tenant in question. From these references they will find out if a tenant paid rent on time, if they are recommended and if they are earning what they say they are.
“The free references allow letting agents and landlords to collect information on a tenant in an easy and hassle free way. It’s great that so many users are taking advantage of the system and collecting their references through the LettingRef system. Landlords and Letting agents can now just pay for their credit check and know that the referencing is covered” concluded Miles Gilham.
