It has been found that the costs of evicting a rogue tenant can stretch into thousands of pounds.
Though you can never guarantee that your tenant will not "go rogue" there are things a landlord can to do protect themselves from such a nightmare:
1) Complete full and comprehensive referencing checks.
2) Get a full reference from a previous landlord.
3) Obtain employment details and check the county courts register of judgements.
4) Consider landlord insurance for rent indemnity and legal cover, there are many providers out there.
While you may do all of these things, and still end up with a rogue, the damage they cause may be limited.
