Referencing Process

How do I fill out the referencing forms?

Once you have created your account with Goodlord, simply login if required and work your way through the questions as they are presented. Questions marked with an asterisk are required fields. You'll need to take a photo of your ID or upload a scanned image so make sure you have this ready. Any documents you need to upload can be done through the same platform.

Can I pay the rent and deposit as close to the tenancy start date as possible?

When the tenancy agreement is ready to be signed, you'll be asked to make a payment for the rent and deposit and you can do so either by making a card payment or making a bank transfer. If your tenancy doesn't start for a while and you'd be more comfortable making a payment closer to the time, you can select 'pay by bank transfer', make a note of the bank details, and then sign the tenancy agreement so the landlord gets the chance to sign their copy. You'll just need to make sure you've made a payment for whats due at least a few days before the start of the tenancy to ensure the funds have cleared.
