“Innovations like MyHomePassport that enable tenants to pre-qualify themselves will help to transform referencing and access to the private rented sector. Using a wide range of data, their system allows anyone to prove they are, and have been, able to pay their rent, so a single-parent family on benefits can achieve as high ratings as a more affluent family/individual. As an estate agency that aims to drive best practice and use profits to meet more housing need, we welcome their approach and look forward to welcoming prequalified renters in our area.”

As a responsible renter, you know your rent payments will be maintained as agreed in your contract so you can confidently opt in to this system. We enable proof of your payments to be recorded and count towards your credit history in the same way that mortgage repayments are.

Recent law changes have impacted your time and profits. The tenant fee ban means you must now pay if you want to do background checks and referencing. You can no longer charge the tenant as you did before so ‘Referencing’ has now become a time-consuming cost.The law states that tenants can opt to obtain their own reports and references in advance.ARLA, the association for letting agents, strongly advises the use of proptech such as MyHomePassport® to streamline your costs.Tenants choose MyHomePassport® for two reasons:
They are prequalified (with guarantors if required) to reduce your admin time and to help them secure their home ahead of other renters. You have this assurance before deciding to arrange viewings with them.
MyHomePassport® is the most credible system of its kind because its unique use of live data ensures it is never out of date and the referencing is legally compliant.
