Tracing an Ex-Tenant
Tenant tracing is the process of locating ex-tenants whose current addresses are no longer known.
Tenants can often leave a property without notice or providing the landlord with a forwarding address.
In many cases tenants leave the property with unpaid rent and damage to the property.
Landlords will want to ensure that they get any monies that were due to them before the tenants disappeared. This will probably involve taking the tenant to court.
In order to take court proceedings against a tenant, you will need an address for the tenant to serve the legal documents on.
Here at CCS, we make tenant tracing easy and stress free!

Information to assist with the Tenant Tracing service
Before instructing our agent to undertake a people tracing service please ensure you provide as much background information as possible such as:
Last known address (or addresses)
If you can provide us with the address the tenant rented and any previous addresses they may have supplied as references when applying for the tenancy.
Valuable information about the ex-tenant greatly enhances the rate for a successful tenant tracing. Information such as date of birth, marital status, Any known employment, car/vehicle details and registration number. Are there any known children or pets.
Any contact details
Telephone numbers, email addresses, LinkedIn and other social media account information will also help to identify where the ex-tenant is.
Any known people the ex-tenant has associations with will also help with the tenant trace as it can possibly identify any movements and areas likely to be located in.
Tenant Tracing Processes
The tenant tracing expert armed with as much information is now able to commence the tenant tracing service process. These will include the following:
1. Last known Address
Start with the last known address and look for links to new possible linked locations. Mail forwarding is a common link as people need to receive important correspondence.
2. Notification changes.
When leaving an address, the tenant will often notify various businesses, suppliers and utility companies, banks, credit card companies, etc.
3. New residents
