What makes Movem different?

1 The smart form that will only get smarter

Tenant referencing has always been complex and paperwork-heavy. Movem’s smart form is a game-changer, incorporating modern technology with our black box to create the only 100% automated referencing process.

2 Prevent fraud with smart income and rental payment analysis

Say goodbye to lengthy, unreliable employer and landlord references. Smart, accurate income and rental payment analysis straight from the tenant’s bank means you’re getting a new and unparalleled level of fraud prevention.

3 Movem really is the only truly instant reference

Other providers often claim 'instant' referencing, when in reality this requires referees to be sitting and waiting for a reference request to ping into their inbox.

Movem genuinely takes only as long as the time it takes a tenant to complete our form (on average, less than 4 minutes). Once submitted, you'll receive an instant notification.
