Using Skype with Right2Rent

Skype Logo

With our new Comprehensive Right to Rent checks we can now take on full legal liability for checking a tenant’s immigration status. We take on responsibility for interviewing the tenant, asking all necessary questions and establishing that the documents provided are genuine and match the person being interviewed.


At Right2Rent we use Skype video conferencing as part of this premium service for interviewing tenants. We find Skype a really useful resource as it is:-

  • Already widely used
  • Free to use
  • High enough quality for us to compare the original documents we have with the video image in front of us.

You can download Skype for whichever device you have, whether it is a PC, laptop, tablet, phone or even an internet enabled device such as an Apple Watch. Please follow the link below to find the device you have and download the correct version for you:

Once you have downloaded Skype and followed the set-up instructions please add us as a contact – our username is right2rent.

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:

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:

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
