Renting Your Property:
Referencing

At Portico we believe reliable tenants equals happy tenancy, and that references are essential to the letting process. All references are carried out by an independent reference company and where possible will use an Open Banking facility. Open Banking provides a secure way to electronically share financial records from the tenant's online bank account whilst maintaining control over data at all times.

It means we won’t have to chase employers or landlords for a manual reference unless requested and it usually takes around 2-4 hours (versus a minimum of 3-5 days for standard manual referencing).

The referencing process will also confirm the following;

  • Any County Court Judgments (CCJs), Bankruptcy Orders or Bad Credit listed against the tenant.
  • Income between all joint tenants, to ensure the total is a minimum of 2.5 times the annual rental sum.
Open Banking – We will only use financial data for the purposes of confirming income and affordability. Login details are not passed to or retained by either the Agent or referencing company.

If you need a letting agent that can deliver you consistently reliable tenants, then give us a call on 0204 5793 011 .
