Chancellors are delighted to announce that in recent months we have partnered with Canopy, a company looking to revolutionise the referencing process. Their aim is to make it easy and stress free for tenants to provide the necessary information to landlords and estate agents, leading to a simplified renting process for both parties.

So how does it work? Tenants can easily verify their income and provide evidence of their ability to pay rent (without endless paperwork!) by securely connecting their bank account to Canopy via opening banking. You can also verify and build your credit history with a quick soft credit check and the use of Canopy rent tracking.

One of Canopy’s most impressive features is the ability to create and share your RentPassport™. You simply spend 10-15 minutes* filling out your details to create a passport, that can then be shared with a new estate agent or landlord each time you move. This means that all of your details are ready to be passed on to the relevant parties and you won’t have to start from scratch each time you move to a new rental property!

To celebrate our partnership with Canopy we ran a fantastic competition where you could win a host of amazing prizes if you created a RentPassport™. We would like to congratulate all of our winners and hope that they enjoy their prizes!
