Patch Property

Renting properties has become a real issue for people in the UK due to high rent rates and a lack of good properties to choose from. Or that was the case before Patch Property arrived on the scene, with 100,000 users and one of the top-ranked apps on the Apple App Store, Patch is single-handedly reinventing renting for private tenants in the UK. The app tracks your monthly rent payments which helps to build your credit score for later in life when you’re ready to buy your own property. Patch also offer to pay the deposit on the property you’d like to rent up to the sum of £4,000. All you need to do is pay a small monthly subscription fee.

There’s also a team of real people checking every advert on the site, allowing you to rest easy in the knowledge that your safety is always being put first.
