Been a landlord for a few years and got a new one on me.
Tenant credit checks failed for affordability and credit check. In discussion with them they said that his employee was planning to pay rent directly to us and be a guarantor. The credit check was explained as being about a previous failed business but that the ‘arrangement’ ends in two months.
I’ve checked our landlord insurance. The guarantor gets over the two issues but it just seems really odd.
Fishy? Or is this common and nothing to worry about.
Thanks for your help
