Tenants who don’t pay – a perennial headache for landlords. Kieno Kammies interviews credit bureau TPN’s Michelle Dickens.

(This interview happened on 21 January 2020.)

It’s not easy to get rid of a non-paying tenant.

So, how do you ensure the people interested in renting your property aren’t non-payers who will tie you up in a legal tussle when you try to get them out?

Kieno Kammies interviewed credit bureau TPN’s Managing Director, Michelle Dickens.

Dickens knows a thing or three about this perennial headache for landlords.

Her company does an extensive background check which it updates every time a tenant pays her or his rent.

If the tenant fails to pay TPN sends a letter of demand, eventually followed by a blacklisting.

For more detail, listen to the extensive discussion in the audio below.
