  • Hi Christian, You do need to show an agent that you right to rent property in the United Kingdom, so they probably will ask to see your passport and perhaps your visas associated with it. They’ll also need to know that you have a source of income in the UK. So, if you’re coming over to work, they’ll need to see contracts of employment with your future employer and be able to take a reference from them to insure that you’ll be able to pay the rent. If, however, you’re not coming here to work, you will need to show that you’ve got a source of income from overseas, to pay the rent, or just cut all of that out and pay all of the rent in advance, if you’re able to do that. That way the financial checks don’t need to be as thorough. So, just remember you will need a passport, you’ll need to prove identification and you’ll also need to show that you have a means of paying the rent, or pay the rent itself, and then perfectly possible to to rent from wherever you are in the world. Good luck with the move. Jonathan Rolande :-)
