Your Details

Your first name, last name and email will be auto-filled but you can change these if you wish.
The email entered is where the notification that the report is ready to download or if there are issues, will be sent. This should be your email and check spam/junk folders.

Proposed Tenancy Details

Start typing the proposed tenancy address in the box provided or enter a postcode. As you type, you will be able to choose from the list the full address.
If the property is a flat but the flat doesn't show up in the address list, you can manually add flat number in the "flat" field.
This address is the proposed tenancy address and NOT the applicant's address.

Proposed Rent (PCM)

Enter the proposed rental amount calendar monthly (so if the rent is weekly, it will need to be converted to calendar monthly).
Enter numbers only.

Applicant Details - Name

Enter the full name of the proposed tenant.

Date of Birth

By using the selection boxes, enter the proposed tenant's date of birth.

Adverse Records

Has the applicant informed you of any adverse records (e.g. county court judgments or bankruptcy)?
This question should have been asked of the applicant via a suitable application form.
Select yes or no (default is no).

Applicant's Current Address

Start typing the address or postcode and choose the applicant's current address from the list provided.
The system will only work and be able to locate an applicant if the address is on the list of Royal Mail addresses for the UK.
Overseas addresses won't work. If someone has been overseas for a period, you may need to extend the months and years of a UK address to "fool the system" in proceeding but such an action may result in the reference not being found.

How long at current address?

Using the the dropdown, select years and months at current address.

Previous Address 1

Where the applicant has been living at their current address for less than 3 years, repeat as above but for their previous address.

Previous Address 2

Where the total years of current address plus previous address 1 are less than 3 years, previous address 2 will appear. Enter details by repeating above.
This is the last address needed even if the total of all years remains at less than 3 years.

Confirmation

Confirm the statement by checking the box and click submit.
The data will be sent to the credit bureau where a report will be produced.

Afer Submitting

After submitting, you will be returned to the referencing list and you will be able to see live progress of the report similar to when building a tenancy agreement.
Orange whilst being prepared
The report should only take a few seconds to be ready in most cases. After which, the progress indicator will show green "completed". The report can be downloaded by clicking the green completed notification or from the actions button in the referencing list.
Sometimes, the report is delayed because it needs to go to the bureau for human intervention. It's unclear why and when this happens but is fairly rare.
If this happens, you will get an email.
We will chase the report with the bureau but it can take up to 1 full working day before returned when this happens.
The report will be sent as soon as it's ready.
