Reduce unnecessary spend and keep your team safe with “Credit Check with Waiting Approval”


Rightmove referencing has free upgrade features that support you in placing better tenants. One of the most popular is the unique Credit Check with Waiting Approval feature that lets you reject a tenant before you’re charged if you strongly suspect they’ll fail referencing. This allows you to pre-qualify applicants in advance of a viewing, giving you the option to cancel a reference before you pay for it. This not only allows you to avoid unnecessary spend, but helps protect your staff; keeping them safe during the pandemic by minimising the need to conduct viewings if you suspect it won’t lead to a tenancy.

What agents are saying about Credit Check with Waiting Approval

We’ve used this feature to significantly increase our lets per viewing. In January 2020 we had to do 3.5 times the viewings per let that we have to do now. To put that into perspective we have done 30% of the viewings in January 2021 than we did in January 2020 and we have let more properties in January 2021. Obviously given the need to minimise physical contact this is really important but it’ll also be a huge cost saver for us in the long term.
