April 2010

Dear ,

Welcome to Property Insight, the Hamilton Fraser E-Newsletter for our Property Insurance customers.

What should I do if my tenant is made redundant?

First of all, don't panic. Communication is key: you don't want them to stop answering the phone or the door to you. And knowing the system can both help you, help them and ensure that your rent stays paid with the minimum of grief for everyone involved.

If your tenant's rent is paid up to date and they've generally been good to deal with up until now, there's no reason to assume that they'll suddenly turn into the tenants from hell.

Encourage your tenant to apply for housing benefit as soon as possible. Some councils can take a while to pay out, so the claim needs to be put in as a matter of urgency. For most tenants in private accommodation, Local Housing Allowance will be payable; this benefit is usually paid to the tenant, not to the landlord, so you should ensure that your tenant is aware they'll need to keep making rent payments on time.

Tenant Checks are not an Optional Extra

Landlords must always make background checks on potential tenants, according to the National Landlords Association (NLA), the leading representative body for private-residential landlords in the UK.

Too many landlords are failing to make simple checks on tenants before handing over the keys to their rental properties. This significantly increases the risk attached to every tenancy where the landlord has no idea about a tenant's past financial history.
