Bank-grade security

You can build up your history with our partner Experian when you register your rent payments with Housemate (this feature is currently only available in England and Wales). This will not directly improve your credit score but it can help lenders identify you if you apply for credit. We’ve got a ‘Credit score checklist’ on the app that contains key actions that you can take to improve your score so you could get on that property ladder sooner.
