Effort rate

What is the effort rate?

The rate of effort is simply the weight of the rent amount. in relation to your tenant's income. The higher the rate of effort, the higher the rent. will be a significant expense for the tenant. It determines which rent for which salary.
Effort rate

What maximum effort rate is accepted for the GLI?

At Unkle, we make sure that the effort rate does not exceed 38% (when the guarantee is financed by the tenant) or 37% (when it is paid for by the owner). In both cases, there is no need to demand an income from the tenant 3x higher than the amount of the rent. (which could translate into an effort rate of 33%).
Effort rate

How is the effort rate assessed?

Our platform automatically calculates the total amount of the tenant's resources by taking into account all the tangible elements (not only the salary) at our disposal: tenant's salary, bonuses, allowances, savings, land income etc. We relate it to the amount of the rent (including charges) to obtain the famous effort rate, expressed as a percentage.
Tenant's documents

What documents for the GLI insurance?

For each application, we ask for an exhaustive list of supporting documents to be provided.

Our platform adapts to each tenant and each situation. Here are the generic elements required to validate the tenant file:

• Identity document
• Proof of income
• Notice of assessment
• Proof of income supplement

Tenant's documents

A first, automated check

Our platform performs several actions autonomously:

• Verification of document compliance via our OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology. • Scan and identification of key elements
• Study of the concordance with the information provided by the tenant

Tenant's documents

A second, human check

At the slightest alert, our operators are asked to carry out an in-depth analysis of the file in order to avoid the following common frauds:

• Document forgery
• Salary garnishment
• Incorrect income tax return
• Concealed judicial liquidation (for self-employed workers)

Is Unkle risk-free?

Unkle is guaranteed by Sada Assurances, a Rent default Insurance specialist (the first French portfolio of Landlord Rent Default Insurance before AXA).

Our insurer Sada Assurances is the French subsidiary of the DEVK Group, one of Europe's leading insurance companies with an A+ rating.
