You will have full access to our online referencing provider at exclusive rates; full tenant referencing from £13 per head, or credit report from £6 per head. Additionally, we have arranged £100 credit for our new clients which is available immediately against referencing. Tenant referencing with our industry provider is FREE where you have arranged to sell one of their insurance-based products to your landlord client, for which you also receive commission.
Gain an edge over other local agents with two innovative products available to Southcourt customers:
Southcourt Smart Deposit
A specially tailored Deposit Replacement Insurance product which removes the need for a tenant to pay a deposit, whilst still protecting the landlord against rent arrears and/or damage to the property. This enables the property to be let more quickly, and gives you a competitive edge over other local agents. There is no cost to the agent or the landlord in taking advantage of this scheme, and it costs the tenant the equivalent of around 1 weeks rent. Full details are available in our Members Area, from where you can request the product directly. Read more about the Deposit Replacement Insurance HERE
Rent in Advance
Earn additional commission by offering our provider’s unique “Rent in Advance” service to your landlord clients. Some portfolio landlords would prefer a more immediate cashflow than waiting for the rent to drip though month by month, and this product enables them to do just that. They receive their rent before its due, a full 6 months upfront! Many portfolio landlords find this particularly helpful as it enables them to reinvest and grow their property portfolio more quickly.
Through our Agent Support Centre you can arrange the following on a nationwide basis at preferential rates:
All of the above are available at trade prices allowing ample room to add your own healthy mark-up.
