A Daventry letting agent has announced its partnership with CreditLadder.

Rent payments can help improve credit scores, which can prove to be particularly useful if the ultimate goals is to buy a property.

Kerry Martin, head of operations at Fielding Properties said: “We’re constantly looking at ways to make life easier for our tenants.

"Moving from a rental to a purchased property is getting harder and signing up to a platform like CreditLadder means greater access to competitive interest rates and improves the likelihood of being approved for a mortgage.”

“It also means that if you need to find a different rental property, your application won’t be held up as CreditLadder reports payments to Experian, Equifax and TransUnion – it’s the only way to report rent to all three agencies in the UK.

"Our number one priority is to ensure that not only do our tenants find the best properties that are within their price range, but that our landlords have the best tenants.”
