accurate information in their application-
Reasonable care (This should not be taken as an exhaustive list)
Prior to submitting or applying for Property to rent, it would reasonable for an applicant to:
Check your Payslip/P60/Employment contract/Employer/Accountant to confirm accuracy of your stated income or employment status.
Asking FLK Lettings or the referencing agency(FCC Paragon) if you are not sure about anything prior to submitting an application and following any advice given.
Checking with a credit agency e.g. Experian, Equifax or Callcredit for any defaults or CCJ’s on your credit file, that you may not be aware of, prior to apply to rent a property.
Ensuring your employer, previous Landlord(s) and any other referee are aware, willing and available(within the 14 day reservation period) to verify information you have submitted in your Online application, when they are contacted by a referencing agency(FCC Paragon). Where you have doubt that this is not the case, you should not ‘reserve’ a property and submit an application.

Overstating your income
providing information which is clearly inaccurate about your income or employment – even if the FLK Lettings would have been satisfied with the correct information
failing to disclose (when directly asked) any relevant information which later comes to the landlord or agent’s attention
