Free Credit Check

Many letting agents insist that you have to have a credit check. They like to charge you the tenant for this, with charges reaching £50 - £150 per person.

We recommend that before you start out looking to rent a property you get your latest credit report and have a good look at it.

You credit report is likely to be several pages long. Also the move you have moved the more pages will be on your credit report.

You might be very surprised at who has been making entries on your credit report.

When you do your credit check you can see how many payments have been made late, the addresses you have been located at and who has located you there, any loan or credit card that you have taken out OR has been taken out in your name.

There are several companies that offer FREE credit checks or credit reports. These companies included Experian, and Equifax to name a few.
