Hi everyone, I'm an architect currently doing research on interactions between landlords and tenants within the residential rental market. Unfortunately have had some bad experiences recently, particularly with identity fraud by tenants falsifying identities in a sophisticated manner.

I would be very interested to hear from landlords and owners willing to share their tenant horror stories and what they thought would have helped them avoid these tenants at the beginning! Is it possible to build up trust quickly between both parties and how?

Trying to understand what improvements can be made at the vetting stage to benefit both sides and avoid painful outcomes. It seems like standard procedures don't necessarily give an indication of who someone is.

Grateful for any comments.

If you are genuine,and not just trying to flog some service,I can highly recommend "Talking to Strangers" by Malcolm Glanville,and "Blink" by the same writer.You could end up devising an algorythmn that will outwit the conmen,human judgement is crap!

Thanks for the recommendations of books. Have read Blink but not talking to strangers - will check it out.

Yeah maybe robots can judge human character better than we can
