Haig Property use open banking when referencing potential tenant/s to get an accurate and secure snapshot of your tenant/s financial behaviour – When referencing our tenants complete a digital application and provide authority to allow the connection for open banking. The technology bases the snapshot on the information the bank holds about your tenant/s income and rental payment history. This saves time so your tenant/s don’t have to collect and share all their bank statements and proof of their income, making the whole process faster - so your tenant/s can move into their new home more quickly. Haig Property provide 100% peace of mind to our landlords knowing tenant/s have passed our meticulous checks.

Rent guarantee and legal cover is available to our landlords, as long as the tenant/s have successfully passed our referencing best practice and meet all criteria, please speak with a team member to learn more about our rent guarantee and legal cover service.

Deposit Replacement Scheme: Reposit

6 Things Renters Need To Know About Deposit Replacement Schemes
Did you know that the average deposit paid by renters in England and Wales is £1,139? This is where deposit replacement schemes aim to help you out.

  • A deposit replacement scheme or service means that you'll pay a small fee upfront, normally one week's rent instead of the traditional deposit of five- or six-weeks’ rent. 
  • This fee is non-refundable - but means you'll have less money tied up in a large deposit 
  • This can benefit you and your landlord or agent. The smaller fee helps to free up your cash flow, while your landlord gets the same level of protection, if not more, than a traditional deposit. 
  • You'll still be liable for any unpaid rent or damage to the property, aside from fair wear and tear. Any costs that you may be liable for would be calculated at the end of your tenancy, as normal 
  • If an agency or landlord offers a deposit replacement scheme, you should always be given a choice between that and a traditional deposit. 
  • Some deposit replacement schemes charge a yearly renewal fee and others are chargeable monthly, so it’s important to be aware that they could sometimes cost more than a traditional deposit, depending on how long you plan to stay in the property
