Every member of the household over the age of 18 will need to supply the following, in person, in order, so we can verify the documents.

We only require ONE of the following:

List A (Group 1)

  • UK Passport / EEA National Passport / Identity Card
  • Registration Certificate for Permanent Residence of EEA National
  • EEA Family Member Permanent Residence Card
  • Biometric Residence Permit with Unlimited Leave
  • Passport or Travel Document Endorsed with Unlimited Leave
  • UK Immigration Status Document Endorsed with Unlimited Leave
  • A Certificate of Naturalisation or Registration as a British Citizen.

If you cannot provide one of the above documents you will need to provide TWO of the following:

List A (Group 2)

  • UK Birth/Adoption Certificate / Full/Provisional UK Driving Licence (Photo Card)
  • A Letter from HM Prison Service / Criminal Record Check

If you only have limited leave to remain in the UK then you will need to provide the following:

  • A valid passport endorsed with a time-limited period
  • Biometric immigration document with permission to stay for a time limited period
  • Non-EEA National Residence Card
  • UK immigration status document with a time limited endorsement from the Home Office

IMPORTANT: All documentation must be provided for every member of the household aged 18 and over in person. It is not acceptable to present evidence on behalf of another individual. Failure to comply with the criteria may result in the keys being withheld, offer being withdrawn and/or your application being suspended/cancelled.
