Who are Rentshield Direct?

Referencing tenants since 2005, we like to think we know a thing or two about the lettings industry!

When we started up, we decided that each of our agents would get the service they deserve at a price that’s fair. Our values and commitment to outstanding customer service haven’t changed since then.

In 2010, we became part of Barbon Insurance Group, the largest tenant referencing and specialist lettings insurance company in the UK. We’re still a local company drawing on over 13 years of experience, but with the expertise and support of Barbon Insurance Group at our fingertips, providing comprehensive tenant referencing and associated insurance products you can trust.
