In-house referencing team

Unlike other referencing providers, our team is based right here at Goodlord HQ to provide you and your tenants with a seamless journey. Our wealth of experience in the referencing and lettings industry means that we’re able to turn around references quickly, and we’re on hand if you have any questions.

House on rocket

Speedier move-ins

We’ll manage the whole referencing process on behalf of your agent, so they can focus on the important things like getting your home ready for any potential new tenants to move in to. Our pre-qualification service means time isn't wasted on referencing unsuitable tenants.

Available in-app

As with all of our additional services, Goodlord Referencing is available within the Goodlord platform. All you need to do is send the link to the tenant to start the referencing process. We’ll also send you regular progress updates.



You can now pre-qualify tenants at any point during the tenancy journey, straight from the Goodlord platform. Instruct tenants to provide details to you at the click of a button. Our pre-qualification tool is closely aligned with our referencing criteria, so you have the best view of tenants’ suitability before you progress the tenancy - meaning you don’t waste any time.

Referencing you can trust

We assess tenants and guarantors across four areas to provide you with the best picture of your tenant so you can make a decision based on our recommendations.

How it works

Goodlord Referencing is integrated within the Goodlord journey so that tenants, landlords and agents have a smooth experience. Status updates are provided within the platform to both tenants and agents, meaning it's always clear what the next steps are and tenants can get into your property quickly.
