Tenant Tracing services

Losing touch with your current or former tenants is of concern to many landlords. The tenant may have left a bond but that seldom covers the cost of tenants who have left a property giving no notice. In addition to leaving unpaid rental dues, there can often be dilapidations, outstanding utilities and a delay in re-letting the property. The sooner you restore contact with a former tenant the sooner any losses can be recovered. Our confidential tenant tracing services aims to restore contact with your former tenant in the shortest possible timescales, leaving you in a position to enter into dialogue or legal action with the tenant. We'll keep you informed of progress, retain a detailed log and audit of all steps we've taken and only use our own comprehensively trained staff, managed in a controlled and secure environment. Ultimately, restoring contact with your former tenant increases your ability to receive payment. If you don't know where your customer is, how can you get paid? A consequence of modern society is a highly mobile population. Individuals move address at a far greater frequency than in previous generations. By tracing your missing customers, we can place you in a position to collect any sums due that may otherwise be written off. Write offs filter through as a cost to us all. Few suppliers could deny their charges or tariffs are higher to reflect bad debts incurred by missing customers.
