I Am A Prospective Tenant
How Do I Become APPROVED?

The APPROVED scheme enables prospective tenants to quickly prove their suitability & status to prospective landlords. Because an APPROVED tenant has already passed credit, reference & identification checks, landlords & agents can arrange your rental safe in the knowledge that you are suitable to enter into a tenancy or lease agreement without the need for additional administration, delays or fees.

YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED

APPROVED empowers prospective tenants
to initiate their own background checks.

How long is the APPROVED report valid for?

Each report is valid for 90 days so you should only apply once you are in a position to actively search for a rental property


What if I fail to meet the APPROVED criteria?

Whilst we will not be able to issue your APPROVED Certificate initially you may be offered the opportunity to enhance your application by supplying the details of a suitable guarantor. You should consider our list of criteria before making an application & contact our customer service team if you are need to discuss your circumstances.


I have only been living in the UK for a short period of time & do not have a 6 year traceable address history.

You will need to apply using the International form as this will enable us to check your overseas addresses in addition to those in the UK.


How do I know if my agent or landlord accepts my APPROVED report?

The APPROVED scheme is accepted by thousands of landlords & letting agents across the globe however if in doubt you are advised to ask them during your initial viewing.


Can we complete a joint application?

No. Each prospective tenant must complete a separate application


I am unable to afford the rent alone as my partner earns more than me so will I fail?

No. We only provide a recommended maximum rent for each APPROVED Tenant based on verified income & status. The combined figures from both you & your partner’s reports should show sufficient income.


I am self employed. Am I eligible to become an APPROVED Tenant?

Yes. You will be required to provide an accountant’s details as a referee or bank statements & latest tax return documentation.


I am changing jobs soon so who should I add as my employment referee?

You should add your current employer’s details within the relevant section & add your new employer’s details within the notes section at the end of the form


I am applying for a lease in a company name. Can I do this?

Yes. You must use the Company application form if the tenancy or lease is to be taken in a company name.


I am a student & have no fixed income. Can I become an APPROVED Tenant?

Yes. You will require a suitable guarantor who must be a UK homeowner & have a verifiable income (employed,self employed or retired).


I am in receipt of benefits. Can I become an APPROVED Tenant?

You will need to provide proof of your benefit awards & these will be verified. You may also require a suitable guarantor however you are advised to check that the property that you wish to rent is suitable as acceptance will be at the discretion of the relevant landlord or agent.


I have a small County Court Judgment. Will I be accepted?

You will require additional security such as a suitable guarantor or advance rent payment. Details of the debt will feature on your report & Certificate therefore the final decision will be in the hands of any future landlord or agent.

What is a TrustRank score?

TrustRank is a reputation scoring system that searches social & traditional International media sources to identify serious criminal history & behaviours that may give a potential landlord reason to be concerned about an applicant’s good character or reputation.
