It will pay if tenants don't".He added: "We have evicted many 'professional' bad tenants over the years who go from one property to another duping landlords into renting their properties. One serial bad tenant conned five landlords and owed them £120,000."Ways to avoid signing deals with unwanted tenants include asking for identification before they move in and asking to see bank statements to ensure they have the funds to pay rent.Get a landlord insurance quote today from Simple Landlords Insurance.
