Frequently Asked Questions

RentScore removes the hassle of processing rental payments and helps you incentivise on-time payments from your tenants by giving you the same power as the big financial institutions. Because your tenants’ rental payments are reflected on their credit reports, they have an added incentive to make sure they pay on time and in full, each and every month. You can also use RentScore as an added bonus when marketing your property to tenants – letting applicants know that they can enhance their credit history just by paying their rent will make your property even more attractive!
RentScore is an innovative payment processing tool that gives landlords the same power as big financial institutions. When you sign up with RentScore, we handle all rental payment processing and report your tenants’ rent payments to leading credit rating agency Experian (the UK’s largest Credit Reference Agency). Not only do you benefit by removing the hassle of payment processing, but you also incentivise your tenants to make on-time payments each month. Late or missed payments will be recorded negatively on your tenants’ credit report, making it even more important for them pay on time and in full, each and every month.
RentScore Plus is a rent protection insurance policy exclusive to TheHouseShop.com.
When tenants can't or won't pay landlords are protected. Not only from rent arrears but the legal expenses element of the policy will cover them for evicting the tenant. The great thing about RentScore Plus is that there's no excess to pay.
Landlords also benefit from having 75% of the monthly rent paid for up to two months after an eviction. What's more they are covered for up to £100,000 for legal expenses should a tenant need to be evicted
When you sign up with RentScore, we contact your tenants and set up a recurring payment according to the amount and due date you specify. When your tenants make a payment, the money is immediately stored in a secure, ring-fenced client account and then transferred to you via direct bank transfer.
We can only transfer your rental payment once we receive the money from your tenants. This is why we strongly recommend that all our landlords opt for direct debit payments, that we offer at no extra cost, to ensure there is no delay receiving your rent. You can still use a standing order if you prefer, but you may experience some delay in receiving your rent. Your tenants will likely prefer to use a Direct Debit as well due to the fact that any delayed or late payment will be recorded on their credit report.
Put simply, yes – but let us explain why. All payments made via RentScore are processed through a secure, bank grade encrypted service to ensure that your money and your details are always safe. When your tenants make a payment, it is immediately stored in a secure, ringfenced client account. This is totally separate from our business funds account, so if anything ever happened to negatively impact our business, your rent payments are 100% protected. We take data protection and our customer’s online security incredibly seriously – we adhere to best practices for data protection and go above and beyond to ensure our clients’ details are safe.
Simply give us a call on 0800 048 8910 anytime Mon-Fri | 9:00-17:30 and a member of our team will be happy to help. If you need to get hold of us outside of office hours, simply send an email to support@thehouseshop.com and a member of our team will get back to you as soon as possible.
There are 2 levels of pricing for our RentScore service:

Rental amount up to £2,000 - £9.99 per month

Rental amount over £2,000 - £24.99 per month

The fee you pay for RentScore is automatically deducted from your tenants’ rental payment before it is transferred to your account. So you don’t need to worry about making payments online for your RentScore subscription.
The good news is, if you have up to 2 tenants in your property, you only have to pay a single charge of £9.99 or £24.99 depending on your rental income. If you have more than 2 tenants in your property, we make a small charge of £2 per additional tenant.

For example, for a property with 4 tenants and a monthly rental amount of £1,500 - the landlord would be charged £13.99 per month for RentScore (£9.99 base value, plus £2 each for the third and fourth tenants).

This is simply to cover the costs of the extra direct debit transfers we need to make as a result of the additional tenants.
