As a national supplier to the lettings industry, we’ve been championing quality, cost-effective referencing services since 2009. Winning the coveted ESTAS Referencing Supplier of the Year award demonstrates our commitment to excellence, based on genuine feedback from thousands of customers around the UK.

Hands off for you, hands on for us

With our Tenant Complete system, you enter a name, email and telephone number, and then we take over. A dedicated Referencing Specialist will get to work contacting your applicant and their referees while keeping you updated every step of the way.

And with our Tenant Portal, applicants can log in at any time to see the status of their reference, send us supporting documents, and opt in to additional products and services.

Modern technology meets exceptional service

Our referencing teams work alongside our in-house tech team to develop sophisticated referencing products and services with a human touch – our system helps rather than hinders.

We know each situation is unique, so ultimately every decision is made by our highly-trained staff using their wealth of experience.

What is Open Banking?

Open Banking is a series of reforms to how banks deal with their customers’ financial information, which came into force in 2018. The idea is that customers can choose to share their financial data such as regular payments, income, and statements securely with other organisations.

Rent4sure have leveraged Open Banking to bring you a new state-of-the-art referencing product that gives you insight into your applicants’ ability to pay the rent, straight from the most trusted source – their bank.

What information do you require to complete a reference?

The information we require varies from person to person, depending on their specific circumstances and the type of reference you require. We outline in detail what we’ll ask for in our Referencing Standards Guide, available via your Agent Suite.
