If you’re not sure what an acceptable proof of address (POA) looks like, it’s worth checking your reference report to help you decide which documents you can provide. If you need a bit more clarity, your reference provider should be able to help too.
Having a suitable proof of address is crucial to ensuring your landlords have acceptable tenants. Failure to record a valid proof of address could invalidate the protection offered by flatfair – so if in doubt, please reach out to our friendly Support Team who will be able to help out.
Here’s a list of documents which are usually accepted as proof of address:
- A gas, electricity, water, council tax, home service provider or telephone landline (but not mobile phone) bill dated within the last three months or the most recent annual statement if applicable
- Valid drivers licence
- A bank, building society or credit card statement dated within the last three months showing tenant’s name and address
- Evidence of entitlement to a state or local authority funded benefit dated within the last three months or the most recent annual statement if applicable
- Letter from current employer on company headed paper
- Current mortgage statement
- Homeowners current household insurance policy schedule
- Current TV licence
- Current tenancy agreement signed and dated within the last 6 months (must be accompanied by the signed and dated certificate of deposit registration or deposit replacement schedule)
Any proof of address uploaded needs to clearly show the address and flatfair are not able to accept images of low quality.
