Referencing for pets

A pet referencing service is being launched next month – but it expects agents and landlords to pay to see the references.

PetsScore says its service will be the first in the world for dogs and cats; it aims to attract agents and landlords operating in the short lets and longer term rental sectors.

When it launches it will allow Pet Owners to register their pets for free, list all the information a landlord needs and then gather online references about that pet” says the firm.

“Once a pet owner has references saved, PetsScore uses that data to create a ‘risk score’ for the pet which,like human tenant referencing, it will supply to the Lettings industry” it continues.

However PetScore says agents and landlords will have to pay “as little as £1.50” to buy access to the reference.

Letting Agent Today asked PetScore if there were higher charges; in response we were shown a website page that said a single one-off access to one reference would be £10.

If agents bought a subscription they could then obtain ‘bundle’ charges for multiple reference checks. For example, a bundle of 10 would cost £15 while a bundle of 300 checks would cost £300.
