At RentMaster we have seen an increase in couples living well beyond their means and duping landlords by keeping one partner’s credit rating “squeaky clean” while allowing the other’s credit rating to become besmirched.
When applying to rent a a property, Mr Squeaky-Clean supplies his details, but it’s actually Mrs Besmirched who signs the lease agreement. If the landlord does not pick this up, she’s probably in for a very bumpy tenancy!
Of course, if you’re signed up with RentMaster, that’s not your problem, because your rent will be paid on the 1st. Guaranteed. We’ve been in this game since 2003 and we’ve learnt to spot the chancers a mile off.
