A Different Approach to Referencing
Unlike any other referencing companies we actually do things properly. We never assume anything we are told is the truth by any applicant, which is why we independently verify all information.
We are the only company that uses Land Registry searches on both the applicant’s current and past addresses* so we can verify we are asking the genuine owners (landlords) for references.
Our vigilance eliminates the common deception of having a friend or relative acting as their ‘Landlord’ and supplying a glowing reference (we all know that happens). We are the only company that goes to these lengths to check.
Our vigilance extends to employment checks. Ignoring the contact details given by the applicant we use

A full credit check, with score, is carried out along with various other financial and identity checks.
We use the contact details we discover to contact the employer. This is how all referencing companies should check but most are happy just to send an email to an address the applicant has supplied. We think that is completely worthless.
