What references will I need?
We use online company FCC Paragon to carry out all referencing. You’ll be required to complete a simple online form with the details of your previous landlord, employer and bank as well as provide a copy of your ID (passport, national identity card or driver’s license) and a utility bill/bank account statement showing your current proof of address. You may also be required to undergo a credit score check.
For corporate tenancies you’ll also need a letter from the company naming the individuals who will be residing at the property.
