In order to evidence your right to rent you must show the appropriate ID and documentation to your future agent/ landlord.
It is a legal requirement for agents and landlords to complete a right to rent check on all their tenants prior to moving in. Your agent/ landlord will also be required to keep a copy of the evidence so don't be alarmed if they take a photocopy.
Canopy has made these ID checks and document storage easier for both renters and agents. An agent will send you a request if they require this on your RentPassport™.
