How to qualify

  • To qualify for Rent Upfront as a landlord, we’d ask the below:

  • Proof of ownership

    Confirmation you are the legal owner of the property.

  • Valid tenancy

    An AST or tenancy document that is currently valid and not in breach.

  • Solid referencing or proof of payment

    Choose between providing referencing on the tenants or a schedule of rent payments made to date.

  • To qualify for Rent Upfront as a tenant, we’d ask the below:

  • Proof of accepted offer and tenancy

    A draft tenancy agreement from a landlord or lettings agency regarding a property in the UK.

  • University or employment details

    An accepted place at university or employment contract.

  • Ability to afford rent

    Whether via bank statement or parental guarantors, proof of your ability to pay the proposed rent.


Scraye allows landlords to get paid upfront on any tenancy or tenants who would ordinarily be asked to pay rent upfront to pay monthly instead. We would use our proprietary system to confirm the tenants’ ability to pay the proposed rent and we would then pay rent upfront to the landlord on their behalf. The tenant would then pay Scraye rent on a monthly basis until the amount of rent paid upfront is repaid.

As the referring agent, you get paid a commission for every tenancy introduced. The commission is paid once an agreement is paid and we have disbursed funds to the landlord.

Each tenancy is unique. Our terms may differ depending on where you are in your tenancy and the risk of termination. If a tenancy break clause is activated during a period of rent paid upfront, we would ask the tenant or landlord to refund Scraye for the rent paid for the period after the property is vacated.
