How much does it cost to register with T4LUK?
Registration with T4LUK costs just £19.99 a year and this allows you to register up to 5 properties on our site.
For an additional £99.00, you can have your property listed on Zoopla and get a FloorplansUsketch voucher (this must be used within 14 days of purchasing your listing).
How do I register as a landlord?
It's easy. Simply complete the landlord registration form, pay your subscription fee of £19.99 and your online property portfolio will be created.
In listing any property on our site, you confirm that you're the legal owner of that property and have all the necessary consents to let. You must also ensure your property has a valid energy performance certificate (EPC) as this is a legal requirement.
What happens after I register as a landlord?
Once registered, your registration and property details are held on our site until you delete the property or your account. What's more, your online lettings portfolio is yours to keep for as long as you wish.
You can list your properties as "available" and once a suitable tenant has been found and secured; you can delist or "unpublish" that listing. "Unpublished" properties do not feed through to Zoopla.
When you list a property, you can use the T4LUK communication functionality to:
You can contact anyone looking for properties in the area your rental property is located as long as the property's status is "available". Please note you cannot contact prospective tenants once a property has been successfully let and "unpublished".
What types of tenants are on your database?
Our database lists all kinds of tenants including employed, self-employed, in receipt of welfare benefits (DSS) and students. The one thing they have in common is they want to rent privately.
In addition, you'll find tenants with various "statuses" ranging from those who have simply registered through to those who are fully referenced or who have guarantors that are fully referenced. Each has "opted in" and is willing to be contacted by you.
What is "DSS"?
DSS stands for Department of Social Security. It's an old but constantly used phrase that simply means anyone receiving welfare benefits such as housing benefit; local housing allowance (LHA) and the soon to be introduced universal credits (UC).
The term "DSS" has some negative associations which can be unfair as the majority of responsible and in employment tenants receive some sort of welfare assistance towards paying their rents.
Why do you have “DSS” tenants on your database?
We want you to stay in control of your tenant choice AND we wish to dispel the negative myth that surrounds tenants in receipt of welfare assitance.
Therefore we register all responsible tenants looking to rent a property from a private landlord.
That said some "DSS" tenants registered on the database can have guarantors that are employed or are homeowners.
We are currently working with Let2Barnet (Barnet Homes) and thier incentives for private landlords to work with them is listed on our incentives page. Their tenants looking for accommodation will also be listed on our site from end January 2014 so that you can match thier requirements with the location of your property.
Other Local Authorities will be pleased to work with you if you contact their private sector housing team. They will be delighted to talk to you especially if you have suitable accommodation for their tenants.
Who does your reference checks?
All reference checks are carried out by our independent partners LetRef Ltd. LetRef's checks is one of the most rigorous in the industry and they say "we thoroughly check out tenants and ask questions if there is something we are not convinced about. Not all reference companies bother!".
However, depending on the date the report was produced, we'd always recommend you confirm the tenant's employment directly before granting a tenancy. All references on our site have a maximum validity of six months.
Who do you reference?
Both employed and "DSS" applicants can be referenced allowing you to remain in control of tenant selection based on your business model and risk profile. You should find T4L UK registered tenants are keen to build a good relationship directly with you and in return they are looking to be treated favourably and courteously.
What if my potential tenant has not yet been referenced?
If you've already found a tenant for your property but they're not yet referenced, you can direct them to the T4L UK website. New applicants can register and apply for referencing through our partners LetRef Ltd. Subject to your tenant providing the necessary information; their vetting results will be available within 3-5 days and they can email you a PDF copy of the report.
Who can contact me?
To ensure you get the best leads, the system has been designed so only fully referenced tenants or tenants with a referenced guarantor can contact you directly to express an interest in your property.
