EXPERIAN RENTAL EXCHANGE

Having a good credit history helps to provide proof of your identity and where you live and have lived before.  This can help access a range of goods and services online, including getting the best deals for mobile phones, TV and broadband packages and car insurance. Homeowners with a mortgage have an advantage as their mortgage payment history can count towards their credit history and we strongly believe that your rent payment history should be used in the same way to help you access more affordable credit.

In January 2016 we wrote to all tenants to let them know that we would be working with Experian and to offer the opportunity to opt out of the scheme if they do not want their details to be shared. This letter is also given to all new tenants so it’s clear to them too about the work we are doing. You can see a copy of the letter here.

If you would like to opt out and have not already told us, please contact us on 0161-331-2050 or email us at control@newcharter.co.uk
