Private landlords can ensure "peace of mind"by taking out rental insurance, according to letting agency Young's.

This can be an expensive option, the company states, but may be ideal if the property owner is worried about their customer breaking tenancy agreements.

Collecting rent on time is part of a landlord's rights, but some people who live in rental accommodation can be hard to deal with.

Young's told industry website About Property that there are a number of extra tenant credit checks that can be undertaken to give a private landlord the assurances they require.

"Check the electoral roll to confirm that the tenant has given you an accurate previous address. This can show that they've not been trying to avoid being liable for council tax and also helps to confirm whether a reference from a previous landlord is current,"it said.

On Wednesday, the University of Reading held an evening where landlord advice concerning student letting was handed out. Events like this are regularly held across the UK.
