Since February 2016, the UK Government requires all tenants to prove their Right to Rent in the UK to their landlord or letting agent. This involves either an in-person meeting (at our office in St Albans) or if you meet the criteria, an online right to rent share code and video call.
If you opt for the In-Person Right to Rent Checks, then you must attend our office in person with the original versions of the specific document you will use to prove your Right to Rent.
Follow Up Checks:
If your Right to Rent is not unlimited, then you will be required to prove your Right to Rent again when your initial Right to Rent expires.
It is YOUR responsibility to comply with this requirement. Failure to comply may result in your tenancy being cancelled and you being reported to the Home Office/Border Agency.
For more information about the types of documents you can use to prove your "Right to Rent", please see the attached file.
