Important Update

As of the 1st July 2021 we are no longer able to carry out manual checks on EU nationals to confirm a right to rent.

From 1st July 2021, the majority of EEA citizens will prove their right to rent using the Home Office online service. Those who have made a successful application to the EU Settlement Scheme will have been provided with an eVisa and can only prove their right to rent using the Home Office online service ‘prove your right to rent in England’ available on GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/prove-right-to-rent.

To prove their right to rent from 1st July 2021, individuals will provide landlords with a share code and their date of birth which will enable landlords to check their Home Office immigration status via the online service available on GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/view-right-to-rent.

We are still able to carry out manual checks for non EU nationals and family member of EU nationals in some instances, if you are unsure whether your prospective check meets this criteria please contact right to rent at enquiries@right2rent.co.uk.
