Canopy is a start-up company that is looking to help renters and landlords work more effectively together. Canopy has created RentPassport™ to simplify the application process and the management of ongoing tenancies by providing both residents and landlord with a secure and streamlined way of exchanging details.
Get Living uses Canopy’s RentPassport™ referencing service to improve the referencing experience for our new applicants and residents. Canopy also supports renters in improving their credit rating by recording rental payments as the equivalent financial commitment to a mortgage. Our aim is to have all our residents sign up to the app so that they can benefit from the Canopy RentPassport™ and take advantage of its future developments.
For security deposits, Get Living has its own criteria outlined in our terms and conditions. You can therefore ignore the deposit insurance messages within the app.
Find out more about what Canopy RentPassport™ is.
The Rent Passport is your digital rental history. In other words, it is a standard set of information that Canopy checks and stores against your profile. It does a number of the ID, credit and fraud checks that we currently undertake, but via an app. It scores your profile, so that current and prospective landlords can see your ability to pay and your reliability as a renter. You are in control of how much data you share and who has access to it through the app’s settings.
Residents and prospective residents benefit as:
Your data will not be used for anything other than the purposes stated in the app. Canopy and Get Living do not sell residents’ personal data.
If you are looking to reclaim your deposit from us, part of the process will be a credit check. If you are signed up to Canopy’s RentPassport™, it is a very simple process.
RentPassport™ offers a deposit insurance product which is not relevant for the majority of our applicants and can therefore be disregarded. On application, Get Living uses credit score and other referencing criteria to determine whether we will take a security deposit. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.
