Please be aware that the law now requires all landlords and agents to see, confirm and take a copy of required documents. This Immigration Act 2014 makes it a legal requirement for landlords and letting agents to perform basic 'immigration status checks' on all prospective tenants before allowing a tenancy agreement to be signed.
These checks are required regardless of whether you are a UK citizens or not. The law requires us to check everyone. The checks are usually a simple passport check if you're a UK or European citizen, or a simple visa/permit check otherwise.

If you are arranging your tenancy from overseas, we MUST see/confirm the original documents before you can start living at the property.
