About RentGuarantor Holdings Plc
RentGuarantor provides a rent guarantee service to tenants wishing to rent property in the UK from the Private Rental Sector ("PRS"). The rent guarantee service is an online service where applications can be managed on a secure and bespoke digital platform designed and built by RentGuarantor. RentGuarantor supplies its service to the whole of market - students, employed, and people on benefits including Universal Credit. Local authorities have a legal obligation under housing and other property related Acts of Parliament to provide tenants with a home and this is mostly achieved by paying for the tenant to reside in a PRS property. Local authorities use the guarantee service as they cannot become a guarantor. RentGuarantor's risk from rent guarantees is fully underwritten by Lloyds of London.
The Company's strategy is to strengthen its senior and middle management team and grow revenue in accordance with its business model. RentGuarantor sees the PRS continuing to grow with affordability to buy, coupled with lifestyle choices being the key drivers over the next 3-5 years.
RentGuarantor will rollout additional services that complement RentGuarantor's proposition, which will deliver additional revenue, and cement RentGuarantor as the leading rental guarantor company in the UK.
