students right to rent
Know the Law
UK law requires all tenants to prove they are lawfully allowed to rent a property in England. For UK residents this is usually as simple as popping into our office with your physical passport. We will have to take a copy of your passport to satisfy the right to rent requirements.
If you do not have a current UK passport then sometimes an expired passport is sufficient. If you have neither of these a copy of your driving license and birth certificate will be required.
Non UK Citizens
If you are a non-UK/EU resident we will need you to bring your passport and your visa/residency permit. Any temporary visa will need to be valid on the date the tenancy is due to start.
Failure to adhere to this requirement by your move-in date will delay your right to inhabit the property. For this reason we recommend you bring the relevant documents to our office at your earliest possible convenience after a property has been reserved.
