Tenant Screening technology that helps Landlords rest easy

Safely rent your property & ensure your income is protected.

What is tenant screening?

If you’re an experienced landlord you’ll know that ensuring you have the perfect tenant in your property doesn’t always go to plan. Whether it’s a case of failure to pay rent on time or property damage, you want to avoid tenants that cost you money.

Our tenant qualification technology goes further and deeper to uncover the real risk level of tenants that are often missed by traditional tenant screening. If you’re a brand new landlord your lucky. We reduce fraud, default and delays and guarantee the rental income of every tenant you check because we’re that confident in the service we offer.

The decision on who to let your property has never been simpler. We’re a tenant referencing company with all of the information you need to feel safe your next renter will be the right one.

FAQs

We know you may have many

    From the point in which your tenant completes our application process, the validation process will take approximately 1 to 3 days.

    Although landlords can perform tenant reference checks themselves, it is not advised as the stakes are so high. If you get an unreliable or unsuitable tenant it can cost you thousands in default arrears, court proceedings or property repair costs. You could also find yourself in a position where it is difficult to serve an eviction notice. 

    Homeppl is all about finding fraud and assessing the true risk attached to every tenant. We don’t miss a trick. We use a blend of document analysis, behaviour analysis and open banking data to uncover applicants who are trying to secure your property on false pretences. It is more likely than not if you chose to conduct your own check there are deceptive tricks you’ll miss.

    We've written a guide on the top ten biggest mistakes people miss when performing a reference check.


    Homeppl assesses tenants’ real risk; ensuring no good tenant is rejected and every fraudulent one is. Homeppl is driven by cutting-edge technology, including fraud detection tests, behavioural analysis, and Open Banking algorithms.

    As part of the validation process, we’ll  seek to validate and authenticate three main characteristics of the consumer:

    Identity - establish that the consumer is who they say they are

    Finances - establish the financial circumstances of the consumer, and assess whether they can financially afford the product in the foreseeable future

    Rent Payments - establish whether the consumer has the willingness to meet their legal and financial obligations based on previous rental payments history

    Put simply, a tenant reference check should include a complete background of your proposed renter. We not only do that with speed and accuracy but we detect 100% of the applications that contain fraudulent and inaccurate information.

    Try it for yourself, upload a document to test our fraud detection tech.

    It is a legal requirement in the UK for all landlords to conduct a right to rent check prior to a rental agreement being signed.

    This check is legally required for occupiers over the age of 18 and is to ensure that the renter has the lawful right to rent residential property.

    However, this is a basic level check. Homeppl delves much deeper to ensure that you, as a Landlord, are renting to a fully vetted and responsible tenant.

    Absolutely,

    All though our tenant qualification technology provides security to the landlord, it also provides an opportunity to the renter.

    Offering your property with a guarantor to potential renters makes it more attractive. Our commercial guarantor service means that more tenants can be qualified more accurately.

    You'll also be able to minimise void periods by qualifying a larger pool of prospective tenants.
