Reference types

Instant reference

Credit checks look at all the credit data available on your applicant, including an address search and identity check, details of County Court Judgements, voluntary arrangements on any debts, bankruptcy orders, and insolvency actions.

Comprehensive reference

For more detail, you can also get a full reference, where in addition to our instant checks, Experian will contact employers, pension providers or accountants to make sure the tenant will be able to afford their rent, and contact current landlords or agents about their rental history. Typically this takes just two working days.

We’re so confident in Experian’s references that we’ll offer you or your landlord our Rent guarantee and Legal expenses insurance once the tenants have met our requirements.
