Changes in English law to prevent letting agents charging tenants certain fees may be great news, but it’s also making competition for properties even fiercer. Agents now have to find the right tenants faster and be selective about who they spend their time with, whilst applicants have only a 14% chance of being accepted for a property*. With so many renters looking for a home, tenants need a smart way to stand out, get to the front of the queue and avoid wasting time on unsuitable properties.
That’s where Property Passport
™ can help
