What is the acceptance criteria for my renters?
Your renter(s) must complete a full comprehensive report. For guarantors, we can accept an essential screening or comprehensive screening.
Your renter needs to be earning at least 2 and a half times the monthly rental amount. This can be made up of working income, Benefits and pensions or a combination of the 3. Employment contract length minimum 12 months remaining.
A credit check clear of CCJS/Bankruptcies or IVAs – Renters or guarantors need to be clear of IVAs, CCJS and bankruptcies for at least 3 years.
Proof of identification
We need 2 forms of ID to confirm the tenants are who they say they are and this needs to include 1 photo. So we usually suggest a passport or driving licence along with a utility bill of some sorts. A verified Canopy Credit Check will count as 1 form of ID.
A suitable guarantor will also be accepted for someone who is 'High risk' or 'Accept with 'Considerations' and does not have to be a homeowner.
For anything that sits outside of these rules, or if you are unsure if someone qualifies, please contact Alan Boswell Group for advice.
