Tenants Guide to Renting

Once you have decided that you would like to rent a property through us contact us immediately. We will ask you to pay a holding deposit in order for us to stop marketing and suspend viewings.

In order for London & Essex to accept you on behalf of the landlord, we will need a certain amount of paperwork from you in order to run credit and right to rent checks.

If you are not confident you will get a good credit score, we may still accept if you have a suitable working guarantor.


As standard we require;

  • copy of passport or photographic ID

  • bank statements, last 3 months

  • 3 months wage slips

  • utility bill at current address

  • national insurance number

  • information to obtain references, landlord, employment and character


In other circumstances we may need to see;

  • information on Universal Credit and Income Support

  • Accountancy letters if self employed

  • if using guarantor we would need them to come into office to sign paperwork also

Please download the HM Government - How to Rent Guide for further information.
