An easy way to verify tenant identity

As a landlord or letting agent, you are legally required to check that all prospective adult tenants have the Right to Rent your properties in England.

You’ve probably built a check into your letting processes. However, if you’re dealing with a high-volume of diverse tenants, making visual inspections and photocopying an identity document can be unreliable and time consuming.

Robust identity checks are important to protect your organisation from fraud and reputational damage. Identity document validation technology (IDVT) can also help you establish a statutory excuse to protect your organisation from penalties.
