Identifying high-quality tenants has never been quicker, easier, or more reliable

Shorten void periods. Reduce rent arrears. Cut overhead.

Enter Canopy, the game-changing digital tenant referencing platform. Using Experian and Open Banking technology, we give you instant access to robust, real-time tenant data, so you can make faster, better, more confident lettings decisions—and we do it all for less.

We give you back your time

Cut admin hours, eliminate nonessential viewings, and leave the hassles of paperwork behind.

With RentPassport™, Canopy’s digital profile for tenants, you can verify an applicant's income and past rental payments, confirm rent affordability, and run a soft credit check in minutes. That translates to faster vetting, shorter void periods, and more time to focus on building relationships and closing deals.


We save you money

Canopy offers a free pre qualification service, which means you can invest your time in the best candidates. And only pay for the references that are most likely to progress into a deal.    

Using emerging technologies, means we don’t have to pass the cost of a pricey legacy system on to you.

We provide better data

We don’t simply output Open Banking data, we scrub it and contextualise it so that it’s optimally relevant and helpful to you.

Here’s just a taste of what’s included in our free screening reports:

  • ID (tenant name), date of birth (identity verification)
  • 3-year address history
  • Soft credit check and Experian credit score banding
  • Adverse financial history (CCJs, AML, IVA, bankruptcy, insolvency, PEP, and sanctions)
  • Anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC)
  • Income verification
  • Past rental payments verification
  • Algorithmic rental affordability based on multiple sources of income
