All you need to know about Referencing

A personal and professional referencing service

At Perry Bishop and Chambers we fully embrace the latest innovations in Property technology, to ensure we are always providing our landlords and tenants with the most efficient service possible.

As such we have employed the innovative online platform, Goodlord, to provide our tenant referencing services.  The referencing team are the best in the industry, their wealth of experience in the referencing and lettings industry means that they are able to turn around references quickly, without cutting corners.

Our landlords benefit from regular notifications through each step of the referencing and tenancy creation stages. When the contract is ready, they can sign wherever they are.

Prospective tenants benefit by completing the referencing and tenancy documentation at times to suit them. With no paper forms to complete, it makes moving easy and straightforward. 

We assess all tenants and guarantors across four areas, to provide you with the best picture of your prospective tenants, so you can make an informed decision based on our recommendations.

  • Credit history - making sure prospective tenants have no CCJs or every been made bankrupt, we also check their address history.
  • Financial Referencing - checking to ensure all tenants would be in a suitable position to afford the rent & necessary outgoings.
  • Current landlord Reference – we obtain references on all tenants living in rented accommodation whether through an agent or a private landlord.
  • Right to Rent – We ensure that all tenants have the right to rent a property in the UK, to ensure you are fully compliant with the necessary legislation.

If you have any questions at all in relation to renting your property, or our referencing criteria, please get in touch with our lettings team.

Don't just take our word for it - our latest reviews

Following on from a valuation for probate, we decided to ask Perry Bishop to sell the house for us (just to clarify there was absolutely no pressure for us to go with them for the sale). From day one the service we received was excellent, regular, clear communication and updates.

We have used PB&C several times. The staff are always very friendly and professional, and their communication skills are second to none. They are a real pleasure to deal with, and we would have no hesitating in recommending them.

Perry Bishop were our agent of choice when we sold our house this year - and they stayed with us every-step of the way! We were really impressed by the professionalism and standard of customer care. Shirley and the team kept us informed throughout.

We were potential buyers of a property listed by Perry Bishop, which unfortunately fell through due to unavoidable circumstances. Elaine from the Progression Team was particularly helpful during the attempted purchase process, and she went above and beyond to keep us updated as events developed.
