Under the 'right to rent' legislation introduced on 1st February 2016, landlords and agents are required to check and take copies of identity documents for all new tenants. The checks are backed up by codes of practice - including guidance on avoiding unlawful discrimination which was drawn up with the assistance of the Human Rights Commission. 

The scheme has been designed to make it straight forward for people to give evidence of their right to rent and a range of commonly available documents can be used.


If you’re a British or Irish citizen -

If you’re a British or Irish citizen, you can prove your right to rent in England by showing your landlord one of the following:

  • a British passport (current or expired)

  • an Irish passport or passport card (current or expired)

  • a certificate of registration or naturalisation as a British citizen

You may be able to use an online identity service provider (IDSP) to prove your right to rent instead of giving your landlord your documents to check. Ask your landlord if they offer this.

If you’re not a British or Irish citizen -

If you’re not a British or Irish citizen, you can prove your right to rent in England with:

  • a share code - you can apply for a share code online 

  • your original immigration documents 

You can choose which option you use. Your landlord cannot reject your application because you gave them an eligible immigration document instead of a share code, for example.
