As a part of our security system we do credit checks of those who want to rent via Hygglo. The reason we do this is because the value of the rental object is often much higher than the rent you pay.
We use Creditsafe for credit checks. A copy of the credit information will always be sent to the person who has been credit checked. The checks made through Creditsafe does not affect your credit score and Creditsafe does not report to other companies that a check has been done on you. This means that the number of credit checks does not affect your rating, score or future creditworthiness.
You can read more about how Creditsafe’s credit checks work on their website.
