Right to Rent Identity Verification

Swift Right to Rent checks

With Veriff, you can streamline remote tenant Right To Rent checks in line with the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework (UKDIATF). As a certified digital identity service provider (IDSP), our platform enables you to remotely verify an individual’s identity as part of right to rent checks, while aligning with UK Government regulations.


Compliant and streamlined tenant verification process

Landlords and rental agencies in the UK must ensure that they comply with the Right to Rent requirements. As a Certified Digital Identity Service Provider (IDSP), Veriff helps you to conduct the necessary checks with our UKDIATF certified identity verification solution. Here’s how it works:

Verifying the tenant’s identity

Veriff’s certified identity verification solution guides the tenant to verify their identity easily and quickly

  • Capturing the document and selfie
    The tenant asked to take a photo of their government-issued identity document and a selfie.
  • Verifying the tenant
    Our AI powered automation supported with an in-house team of human experts checks the document’s authenticity and validity, while checking the person’s realness and similarity to the photo on the verified document.

Additional required checks

At the same time and as part of the required checks, the tenant is checked against the following:

  • Cifas fraud risk database checks
    The tenant’s data is checked against the Cifas fraud risk database to protect against known fraudsters.
  • Credit history and electoral roll checks
    Our solution automatically validates the presence of a tenant's credit history or their existence on the electoral roll database. These required checks provide a higher level of confidence in the authenticity of the user’s asserted identity.
  • PEP registry checks
    Veriff checks that the tenant is not on a Politically Exposed Person (PEP) list.
