Make sure you know your tenants - our referencing services are specially designed to reduce the risk of letting for landlords.
What are the benefits of getting my tenant referenced?
Our referencing service is designed to help you make an educated decision about who you let your property too. It helps you build up a picture of the applicants financial situation, residential history, their lifestyle and their reliability when comes to keeping monthly credit commitments, it also allows you to assess whether the property is affordable for the applicant.
What does reference include?
Our full profile referencing service includes address history verification, bank account confirmation, previous landlord letting agency references, as well as checks for adverse credit, county court judgements and existing credit arrangements.
How long does the process take?
Our Full Profile service is available with an average 24-48 hour turnaround. We also offer a four hour ‘Insight’ service and a Credit Check only service which takes an average of just one hour to complete.
I am a commercial landlord, can I still get my tenants referenced?
Yes, we also offer full company referencing. The report is available within one working day and provides a full picture of the company’s financial history, including confirmation of registered trading address, verification of business activities and a county court judgment search.
