Established in 2012, and led by George Spencer, CEO, Rentify helps landlords to market, manage, and make money from their properties via a letting service (that allow them to create a free advert which will be published on the UK’s leading property sites, including Zoopla, PrimeLocation, FindaProperty, The Times, Daily Mail Property, Sky, AOL, Yahoo!, MSN, etc.), and a full property management service.

Rental Raters started up in 2013 to make the process of renting a home fairer for tenants.

Although it is entirely normal for landlords to demand large cash deposits, references, and a credit check from their tenants, those about to move into a rental property frequently do so based on nothing more than a cursory look around the property and a gut instinct. Rental Raters believe this needs to change.

Rental Raters’ growing user community knows that one of the most useful pieces of information a prospective tenant can have before moving into a rental property is an honest review of that property from a previous tenant.
