During the application process you will need to provide multiple forms of identification and current address. These will include; a valid passport, driving License, utility bills and bank statements.
Who decides if you're successful?Ultimately the final decision on any tenant is down to the Landlord, he is the owner and has all the risk involved. All landlords will have different factors which effect there decision; pet owners and smokers are the most common reason for being rejected in the application process.
