I was woken this morning by a text from one of my tenants checking that his rent had been received after he had changed his bank and his subsequent standing order. I've just checked and his payment has sailed unhindered into my account as per usual. This is not the first time I've had a tenant contact me to make sure that I've received my rent. If you are suffering with 'scumbag' tenants that constantly give you the run around then hopefully my experience highlights that 'nice, honest tenants do exist'.
If you are not so lucky with your tenants remember that you have the opportunity to post your questions in our landlord legal forum to get some answers of what to do next.
