Can landlords get DBS checks for their tenants?
If you own a property that you’re renting out, or you’re considering taking in a lodger, you can request a DBS check — previously known as a CRB check — for prospective tenants with their permission.
Your tenants would need to complete the application form and present their completed certificate to you to check the results.
What will a DBS check reveal about my tenants?
A Basic DBS check will search a tenant’s criminal history for any convictions and conditional cautions considered ‘unspent’.
