  • Tenant Referencing

    Help with references for overseas students

    Looking for help from people with experience for renting to overseas student(tenants), I have three students who are studying in France(French Nationals) and they are looking to study one term at partner University in London.

    I have booking via an online portal, they(tenants) have provide copies of their paperwork passport etc. and copies of their guarantors(payslips) however all of this information is in French. But I need to get this validated somehow?

    None of the references companies can help fully – having spoken to few? – These companies say I have to pay upfront for references and charge the tenants & if they fail then I’m left with a cost circa £162.  As the tenants are not in the UK yet – not sure if I should progress this and leave my apartment empty for another month?

    Please help – thanks in advance

    If its for one term, all rent up front and confirm/compare passports in person when they arrive? No other way of doing it and protecting yourself. You can get an online contract that they can sign remotely.

    Contact the NLA/RLA if you're in doubt.
