Properties come to you, not the other way around.

Why Use A HomeHak Tenant CV?

Your Tenant CV will get stronger as you add references and renting history. All you need for a successful home-search in one safe, secure place. Ready to use any time, in any location.
With HomeHak Tenant Selector, uniquely, agents and landlords can apply to you for their properties. Outline what you desire in a home so you can be offered what you need.
Control Your Personal Data
Use your information to promote yourself, but then make it private when you have your home. Control who has access to your data, when, and for how long.
Show you are trustworthy
Landlords really value references. HomeHak streamlines how you collect references so lots of your connections can vouch for you upfront. Plus, ID Verification from Stripe is built-in, and free.
Track your application
Easily share your tenant CV as a digital link. Know what’s happening and see when your tenant CV is viewed and shortlisted. Take away some of the mystery and be more aware where you stand in the process.
Save time and money
It can be costly to take time off work for viewings that come to nothing. The agent or landlord knows from your HomeHak tenant CV who you are and what you want. So when you get selected, they think you will like the property. Viewings become more worthwhile.
Don’t leave your home to chance.
So much is affected by your choice of home; relationships, work, health, relaxation, fun, security, mental wellbeing, finance and so much more. Take control of your home-search. Benefit from the tools in HomeHak and get organised.
Search now, move in future.
If you know your future move date, post your Tenant CV now on HomeHak Tenant Selector, well in advance. No need to wait anxiously for properties to be advertised just before your move date. You can be super-organised with little effort.
Strengthen your credentials
One place to store everything and build your credibility for when you rent again or for when you decide to buy a property in the future.

How should I go about getting a reference?
When creating your HomeHak Tenant CV, there is a feature that allows you to send an automatic email invite to a landlord or an accommodation manager. You can invite them to give you a reference which you can show on your Tenant CV - like a review to promote you as a great tenant so you get selected
What can I do if I don't have any landlord references because I haven't lived away from home before?
At HomeHak, we recognise that some students, particularly first-year students, may not have prior experience living away from home and may find it challenging to obtain landlord references. If this applies to you, mention in your description that you are a first-time renter. If you have stayed in Irish college accommodation or with host families previously, you may also want to include this information and even invite a member of your host family to provide you with a reference on the HomeHak platform. Furthermore, you may consider using personal references from other connections such as coaches, lecturers, friends etc. who are willing to vouch for you.
