4. Vetting Documentation

The landlord is able to request that you produce certain documentation as part of the vetting process for an annual tenancy, although the list of documents is severely prescribed.

Those documents which the landlord is entitled to ask for and see are:

  • Last three months salary/pension slips
  • Rental payment receipts from last rental property (if relevant)
  • Income tax declaration
  • Employment contract
  • Previous address, and employer details

The landlord is not entitled to ask for bank statements or marriage contract, medical certificate.

You may well be asked to supply references, particularly if you are already in rental accommodation.
