Right To Reside UK

Every application processed by Rentchecks includes verification of the applicant's right to reside within the UK. This is applied to all applicants regardless of their nationality or origins.

To assist the process landlords & agents must take a copy of every applicant's passport, visa or ID document & enter the reference or document number on the application form.

Pilot programmes across some UK areas (eg Birmingham from December 1st 2014) stipulate that all landlords must verify their applicant's right to reside within the UK & it is anticipated that this will become legislation everywhere within the next 2 years.
