What is a normal documentation that an estate agency for letting asks from potential tenants i.e. proof of income etc?
We are looking for the flat to rent and we've just found the perfect place for us. The current tenant wants to leave the flat prior to expiry of his contract with the landlord. He told us that the part of his contract says that he needs to find new tenants if he want to leave earlier, and that the agency has to do the credit check on us before signing the contract. Because he has to find the tenants he asked us to sent to him not to the agency : proof of identity (like copy of the passport), proof of address (bank statement or utility bill), payslip and employers details. So we did. Now I’m bit worried that we sent all our data to a complete stranger, and that maybe the whole thing might be a hoax. Please let me know if this is a normal practice, or I should be worried. Many thanx, jovana
