We manage in the region of 600 houses, cottages and flats from £350 to £3,500 per calendar month, furnished and unfurnished.

Landlords you’re in safe hands.

We are so confident in our reference checks, Homelet will pay for the eviction of any tenant who has passed referencing through them and has stopped paying their rent in the first 12 months of tenancy.

  • We will check for any adverse credit history such as, bankruptcy, CCJs and court decrees and also check if there’s any previous names and addresses which they haven’t disclosed
  • We will check whether there is any undisclosed credit history which is linked to their current and most recent homes & that the banking details provided are for a genuine bank account. We check against up to three credit agencies
  • We will conduct a check against HomeLet’s own Default Database – this may indicate whether your tenant has not been able to pay their rent in the past & conduct a Financial Sanctions check, it is important to make sure that your tenant isn’t registered to any of the Government’s Asset Freezing lists - because this could mean they are unable to pay their rent in the future
  • We will contact the previous Landlord or Managing Agent who will need to verify the tenants have always paid their rent on time, taken good care of the property and not had a deposit withheld for dilapidations
  • We will also speak to their employer to check the tenant is being paid what they have told us and that there is no reason their employment will be terminated any time soon

And there’s more…

  • We can also reference Overseas Guarantors, perfect for those tenants with parents or relatives abroad
  • Plus, for the first 12 months of tenancy, Homelet will pay for the eviction of any tenant who has passed referencing through them and has failed to pay their rent
