Our tenant referencing service offers agents reassurance that they are choosing the right tenants for their landlords.
We carry out extensive tenant referencing checks and provide you with a comprehensive tenant referencing report which details all our findings.
We offer a variety of different options and ways to reference your prospective tenants. You can choose to have your tenant referencing report delivered to you instantly, within 1 hour, 24 hours or 48 hours (subject to referee availability) and you can also decide whether you want an “instant” report which is simply a credit check or a “full” tenant reference which is much more in depth and comprehensive.
As part of our referencing, we also offer extensive checks on Foreign Nationals – please see our checklist here.
FCC Paragon has a sophisticated online system which allows you to submit applications, track progress, download reports, access invoices and manage your account. All you need to do is register as an agent to access our exclusive system.
