What is RentDodo?

RentDodo is a platform for anyone who wants to rent a property or has a property to let.

Tenants can use RentDodo to verify their information and apply for properties to rent. Landlords and letting agents can list a property and manage rental applications in one place.

Who can use RentDodo?

RentDodo is a hassle-free solution to streamline the rental process by providing a transparent and easy to use platform which removes stress from everyone throughout the rental journey.

Everyone who wants to use RentDodo must register and have their account verified. This is completely free to do and gives everyone peace of mind.

Once registered, landlords and letting agents can list a property, view applicants in one place and contact the most suitable tenants. RentDodo clearly shows which tenants are verified to rent, saving hours of time. RentDodo helps find the best tenants, and it's free to use our TenantCert solution.

Once tenants are registered for a free account they can upload their information to create a TenantCert. Creating a TenantCert only needs to be done once and then it can be shared with multiple letting agents or landlords directly to show that you are a suitable candidate and ready to rent.

Information is stored and shared securely on RentDodo, which is GDPR compliant, meaning everyone has control over who sees their personal data and how it is used. No more email attachments, just use your TenantCert created on your RentDodo account.

What does TenantCert do?

TenantCert is RentDodo's solution to verify tenants looking to rent a property.

Tenants can safely and securely upload and store personal information to create their TenantCert, and then share it with landlords and letting agents when they are ready to apply to rent. Tenants can easily keep their information up-to-date using their account on RentDodo.

Landlords and letting agents can request access to a TenantCert directly on RentDodo, meaning no personal and confidential information is exchanged over email. This is a GDPR compliant solution which is safer and more secure for tenants and it means that those letting a property never need to handle or store personal information.

This offers everyone a paperless and email-free application process that saves time and stores data securely.

TenantCert is free for everyone to use.

Can I use TenantCert without a RentDodo account?

No, you must register with RentDodo to create your TenantCert. Similarly, letting agents and landlords cannot request access to your TenantCert unless they are registered with RentDodo and you have given them permission to view it. This gives everyone peace of mind that information is being shared securely and safely online.

Is RentDodo secure?

Security is very important to us and we understand that tenants applying to rent are requested to hand over personal information as part of the application process. With this in mind, we’ve designed RentDodo and the TenantCert feature to make your information as secure as possible from both a technical perspective and for GDPR purposes.

Who can see my information?

Tenants have full control over who sees their personal information on their TenantCert. Other users can only access your TenantCert when you apply for a property or share it with a contact. The information cannot be saved or shared by others. You can remove yourself from a property at any time.

Worried about agents handling your data?

By using RentDodo's TenantCert you will never have to send personal information such as passport, payslips or bank statements by email again. TenantCert can only be viewed on-screen by verified RentDodo account holders, it cannot be downloaded or shared with others.

How is it GDPR compliant?

We’ve designed TenantCert around the Data Protection Commissioner’s advice on rental applications. We’ve also standardised the information you share - no more requests for excessive amounts of personal data. You can read how we handle your data in our privacy policy. Using TenantCert is much safer than sending information by email attachment.

To secure your login credentials, be sure to enable our 2-factor authentication feature.

Do you have a mobile app?

No, we do not currently have a mobile app, however, we are currently developing one for both iOS and Android. In the meantime you can access RentDodo from your browser on desktop, mobile or tablet anytime.
