Your questions answered

What is a RentPassportTM?

A RentPassportTM is your free digital rental profile. We carry out all the referencing checks as done by an agent, including: a credit check, ID verification and Right to Rent.

Does my landlord/estate agent need Canopy if I want to use Canopy?

No, your landlord or agent do not need to be active on Canopy for you to create a RentPassportTM. You will be able to use RentTracking to improve your credit score!

What happens if I fail the referencing checks?

Not to worry, you can still rent with a guarantor (usually a parent or guardian) who will agree to take joint responsibility for the rent for the property if you fail to do so.

What happens after I complete my RentPassportTM?

Share your Canopy RentPassportTM with your agent or landlord who will be able to send you an invite to rent once they review your rental profile.

Ready to get started?

Whether you have already found a property, or looking to rent in the future or just looking to build your credit history, we're here to help you get started.
