Tenant's Toolkit

Right to Rent

A tenant will need to show their passport or immigration documents as proof that they have the right to stay in the UK and to rent a property.

If they are a British or Irish citizen without a passport, their birth certificate plus another accepted proof of identity should be enough.

You or your letting agent will also need to see the documents of anyone aged 18 or over who will be living with the tenant.
