Most landlords reference their tenants within the Rent Now process, once a holding deposit has been placed. However if you just want referencing, we offer the same industry leading service and price on a standalone basis.
Simply order the reference and we'll keep you updated by email. The landlord will need to pay for each reference up front (see who pays for referencing?).
If your rental property has a gas boiler or any gas appliances, an annual safety certificate is a legal requirement.
OpenRent has a network of Gas Safe registered engineers who can certify your gas appliances, and also offer optional boiler servicing to keep it in the best possible condition.
It is a legal requirement to obtain an EPC prior to letting your property. In Scotland, this must be obtained before advertising.
An OpenRent EPC lasts for 10 years - and comes at an incredibly low price.
It is the landlord's responsibility to ensure all electrical fittings, wiring and supplied appliances are in safe and working order.
OpenRent can help certify appliances (PAT Testing) as well as the Fixed Wiring (EICR).
OpenRent always recommends creating an inventory report and having this signed by all parties (landlord and tenants) on the move in date.
OpenRent can have this done professionally for you, as well as check the tenants in on your behalf.
In order to make sure your property attracts the best tenants, we'd always recommend professional quality photographs. If you don't have the equipment, or want help taking top-notch photos, we can send someone out to you!
Our price includes professional photos, along with post-processing to make sure they make your property stand out!
We understand you might find it hard to arrange viewings for your property: maybe your lifestyle is busy, or maybe you live a little too far away for it to be convenient. OpenRent can now provide a 24/7 accompanied viewings service.
We have partnered with Landlord Action, the eviction and housing law specialist, to offer landlord legal support throughout their tenancy. Led by Paul Shamplina (as featured in Channel 5's 'Nightmare Tenants, Slum Landlords'), they can help you with rent arrears, eviction notices, ex-tenant tracing and much more.
RGI covers you for any unpaid rent or legal expenses you might incur with this tenancy for just £199 (inc. IPT) a year. You also get access to a free legal helpline for the duration of your policy to help with any issues as they arise.
RGI is only available after successful OpenRent Referencing. Once your references are complete, you'll be offered RGI if the tenants have passed their references.
Buildings insurance covers your property and its contents in case of theft or attempted theft, fire, explosion, lightning or earthquake, water leakage, storm or flood damage.
It will also cover loss of rent if the property becomes unfit to live in, as well as providing public liabilities cover.

“Happy to recommend OpenRent - smart, responsive, seamless service. I was able to be a lot more flexible when negotiating the rent because of using OpenRent and instead of paying lots to an agent I was able to pay for a cooker and extra plumbing / electrical work when I was right at the very end of my renovation budget.”View more testimonials
