Reference a student and their guarantor for just £60 at Tenant Referencing UK

As University students near their last term, at Tenant Referencing UK we are enjoying the usual influx of landlords referencing their next batch of students in preparation for the coming year.

This has seen a rise in the following questions that we’d like to go through again, to make sure that you all understand everything that’s on offer to you at

  1. Can I reference students and their guarantors?

Students are just like any other applicant tenant, so they still have a duty to meet your rental payments and any other tenancy requirements. Guarantors should be referenced in the same way as the tenant and be able to show affordability to meet their commitments, plus the subsidence that they have pledged to their child for the rent.

At Tenant Referencing UK we are always trying to keep the costs as low as possible for the best product available, so now we can offer our members:

a comprehensive student reference plus a guarantor reference for just £60 inc. VAT !

What does this include?…

  • Send & Process Tenancy Application Form,
  • Check Tenants Affordability (Rent paid Vs part time jobs, bursaries, grants and student loans and Bank Statements),
  • Detailed Equifax Financial Report (up to 9 linked addresses, CCJ’s , Electoral Roll data and Credit Score),
  • Tenant History Report (Data share of any rent defaults and property damages),
  • Previous Landlords Reference (as supplied by the applicant tenant),
  • Identification Checks (via Jumio’s Right to Rent Immigration Document Verification Service),
  • Application form, detailed financial report and land registry check carried out on named guarantor.

2. Can I reference a non-uk student?

It can be a challenging task trying to meet the Right to Rent checks and Immigration Act 2014 Code of Practice if you deal with large numbers of overseas students with time limited visas, months in advance of the start of the tenancy.

If your tenant is only allowed to stay in the UK for a limited time, you need to do the Right to Rent check in the 28 days before the start of the tenancy.

For accommodation that’s been arranged months in advance for students visiting on a time limited visa Right to Rent checks must still be carried out and documented within the 28 days before the start of the tenancy, even if this means repeating a Right to Rent check carried out during the initial application.

Tenant Referencing UK proudly offer Identity Document Verification within our referencing, as outlined above in our latest Student/Guarantor package.
