Building a better way to rent.

We're a technology company dedicated to improving the UK residential lettings system. Today, thousands of forward-thinking tenants, landlords and partners use our software to rent properties faster and more securely than ever before.

Rethinking tenancy deposits.

When we started in 2016 renters struggled to pay large deposits, leaving landlords with rising void periods. Plus, the Government deposit schemes and insurance policies of the time simply weren’t benefiting both parties — often leaving someone out of pocket.

We thought there was a better way. So our founders, inspired by the success of deposit alternatives in Germany and Switzerland, set out to rethink the UK lettings system.

We've raised significant capital as we've scaled our company and are proud to have raised $11m in a funding round led by Index Ventures, one of the largest venture capital firms in the world.

A smarter, fairer system for everyone.

Our founding idea was simple, and it remains the same to this day. We combine the most effective government deposit schemes with smart technology to make renting more affordable for tenants, more profitable for landlords and more efficient for agents and institutions.

What we believe.

These are the values that our team and products are built on.

  • Fair for everyone

    Tenants, landlords and businesses should benefit equally.

  • Building accountability

    Open, honest communication is essential to every successful rental.

  • Software for scale

    Software should enhance personal relationships, not devalue them.

  • Playing by the rules

    Our products adhere to strict government and financial regulations.
