Government legislation requires that landlords and letting agents verify potential tenants legal right to rent in England. Right to Rent checks apply to all tenants / lodgers aged 18 and over, even if they’re not named on the tenancy agreement or there’s no tenancy agreement in place / in writing.

Failure to check the legal status of a tenant could result in a civil penalty such as a fine or loss of licence. As of the 1st October legislation changed that required lettings agent to verify that their tenant’s ID either manually face-to-face or if remotely via a certified Identity Service Provider (IDSP). The use of video calls to verify someone’s ID is no longer accepted by the Home Office.

As a certified IDSP our ID identity verification software has been developed using next-generation biometric facial recognition technology, enabling you to perform ID checks in real-time and confirm that the ID matches the actual person.
