When a credit check is performed we are required to inform
the individual that a reference is taking place in order to comply
with Data Protection.
Although you may have done this verbally already with the
tenant/guarantor it protects everyones position to remain compliant
if we just email them a notification.
We could write them a letter to this effect but this is costly
and at Lettingref we are committed to keeping your costs down -
hence email is the most economic way of sending these. Over 95% of
the UK renting population has an email and if you come across one
of the very few people who do not - they can set up a free email
account very quickly with someone like Hotmail in less than 10
Less Administration for you
Our system is designed to cut down the amount of administration

enter their details and address history themselves -
saving you time entering their details.
If you choose to have your tenant/guarantor complete their
details themselves they will receive a personalised email
from our system, just like the one below:
