Right to rent overview

What is right to rent?

If you have the right to rent, you’re legally allowed to live in the UK and rent a home here.

Why is it important?

We have to ensure all our tenants, over the age of 18, have the right to rent. If we didn’t carry out the right checks, we’d be breaking the law and could be fined.

What do I need to do?

We work with a verification service, called NSL, who’ll ask you to provide high-quality copies (a scan or photo) of your:

  • Passport, or
  • Drving licence, or
  • Birth Certificate

You'll be asked to upload these to a secure online portal. Watch the video to find out more.

If you have any questions

If you have any questions about the document-checking process, please contact NSL:
