What information will I need to provide about myself?

PDFPrintE-mail

You will often be asked to provide information about yourself for example:

  • Proof of identification
  • Proof of income (wage slips or benefit award letter)
  • References from previous landlords or letting agents
  • Proof of employment

You may also be asked about your credit history

If you are worried about your credit history you may want to have a look at your own credit report before handing over money for credit referencing. You can do this through credit agencies such as Experian. The contents of your credit report can have a bearing on whether or not you will be acceptable as a tenant by some agencies and landlords.

You can apply for the report online or by phone and post. A single report costs on average £2.

Agencies cannot charge you a 'joining or registration fee' and you should not pay any money unless you have made an application to actually rent a chosen property.
