In Your Application For Tenancy:
Purpose – if an applicant has a negative rental history, or intends to be delinquent, including the following clauses in your application will notify and encourage bad tenants to not apply and save you the headache.  Additionally, it is an opportunity to explain to good tenants that you will be helping to improve their credit rating.  Lastly, it is best practice to get consent prior to reporting.
