Tenants Income Less Than Rent

Hello all

This is my first time using OpenRent as I used Upad before. I have the default screening enabled.

I have received a viewing request from someone whose monthly income is £150 less than the rent on my advert.

So I’m wondering-how does the “screening” work?



You wont choose them? Press Reject button

Hi Colin

My query was not whether I could or should reject them, rather, if this is supposed to be “screening” how did that enquiry get through?

(yes I have rejected them)

I see what you mean, that does seem odd . You need someone from Openrent to reply Seems a bit ridiculous that a tenant would think that the income is o k. Maybe they have a mate joining them, on higher income

They may be another reason to how they can cover the rent and you would need to review this and get evident to support this. I would also ask for a guarantor and maybe three months up front rent.
