If you're not taking their balance before the tenkan there is an issue. Kuzushi should happen before you start moving through.
balance is taken first - posture first and then uke is kept off posture throughout the technique. What I meant by my last sentence was getting lower than your uke, breaking their balance to effect the ukemi once you have tenkaned.
