Good Tenants Scheme
It is difficult for landlords to identify a good tenant, as they could only rely on limited information such as employment record or income proof during tenant screening. Sometimes the tenants may refuse to provide such information due to privacy. It makes the tenant screening more difficult.
Although some organizations have established some database of “bad tenants”, it can only minimize the risk of encountering bad tenants. Centaline Surveyors believes that we should manage the issues in a positive way. Therefore, Centaline Surveyors offer certificate to tenants who completed satisfactory tenancy under our managed properties.
The similar practice is common in western countries where tenants request their landlord to provide a letter of referral, proving on punctual rent payment, no violation of the lease or received any complaints. Centaline Surveyors hopes this practice will become a new trend in the industry, so that the owners can select tenant easier, also encourage tenants to fulfill the lease liability.
