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

Shorten void periods. Reduce rent arrears. Cut overhead.

If you’re a lettings agent or landlord, these are high on the list of priorities, and they all depend on the same thing: finding good tenants as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible.

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.

Want to know more? Here are all the ways Canopy can benefit you and your bottom line.


Canopy's newsletter keeps you at the top of your game with  industry insights, tips and tricks.  


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’s instant screening service is totally FREE. For additional employment and landlord reference checks, you pay just £3 plus VAT.

How can we afford to be so inexpensive? Because we use emerging technologies, we don’t have to pass the cost of a pricey legacy system on to you.

Many agents and landlords who switch to Canopy realise a 50% to 90% reduction in tenant referencing costs and an improved viewing-to-property-let ratio.

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
  • Right-2-Rent checks

We offer more protection against arrears, damage, loss of income, and legal expenses

With DepositFree™, Canopy’s easy and affordable insurance product paid for by tenants, landlords get a full 8 weeks of rent and damage protection (compared to the 5-week standard). Any risk covered by a traditional cash deposit is covered by Canopy DepositFree™.

Are you worried about loss of rent in uncertain times?

For many landlords, their rental income is a key source of their financial stability. Canopy Rent & Legal protection policy protects landlords against loss of income.

The rent and legal protection insurance policy covers for:

  • Rent protection; up to 12 months’ rent paid in full should the tenant fall into arrears
  • Property damage
  • Expenses related to eviction or squatters, along with legal proceedings
  • Legal expenses up to £50,000

The policy also features 24/7 support for agents and landlords through DAS UK’s legal advice helpline.

We expand your network of high-quality tenants

By eliminating cash deposits and deploying next-generation screening protocols, Canopy makes your properties more accessible to a wider pool of good, credible tenants.

More qualified tenants = faster lets.


We drive up revenue

Earn passive income on our digital marketplace. For every product your tenants purchase (think: income protection, contents and car insurance, utility switching, and more), you earn a 20% revenue share—no effort required.

Meanwhile, with Canopy RentTracking™, your tenants can report rent payments to Experian to improve their credit scores, giving them more incentive to pay you on time, every time.
