TenantVet was created, designed and is managed by experienced landlords, letting agents and industry professionals.
We realised how easy it was to hand over keys to a prospective bad or troublesome tenant and allow them to cause problems by failing to make payments, cause damage or other breach of their contract. These tenants could cause the same problems again and again with little or no effective method of tracking their behaviour towards landlord after landlord.
The answer was to create a database of tenants in the UK. Landlords, letting agents, housing associations and local authorities could then upload information about their tenants which would tell other landlords, letting agents, housing associations and local authorities whether the tenant was likely to be a good tenant or a bad tenant.
The database has to comply with both data protection and human rights legislation. It has to protect the rights of the landlord, the letting agent, the housing association, the local authority and crucially the tenant.
The result is TenantVet.
In addition to our own legal advice we have sought and obtained the legal advice of many others including local authority solicitors. TenantVet complies with data protection and human rights legislation for all our users. We believe that TenantVet is the only tenant database service in the UK that is fully compliant with data protection and human rights legislation.
TenantVet is not just about identifying bad tenants – it helps identify the good tenants who form the majority of the tenants in the UK. It helps good tenants rent more easily and provides invaluable reassurance to property owners and managers. In short, TenantVet is the best reference you can get.
TenantVet is a free service. We generate our income by providing a range of products and services which landlords can buy through us. When landlords buy through us we are paid a fee or commission. There is no obligation on any user of this website to have to buy any product or service at any time.
TenantVet is a UK based company. Whilst contributing landlords might be based outside the UK we only accept information and data about UK resident tenants of any nationality living in UK situated property.
