Documents Needed for Your Housing Application
In order for us to fully assess your housing needs and application you will be required to provide a range of documents depending on your circumstances. We will not be able to make your application live without these.
You will need an image (clear digital photograph from a phone or camera or scanned electronic copy) of your proof of identity which includes one of the following
• a passport
• photo-card driving licence
• EU identity card, or
• birth certificate
(if your name is now different to that on your birth certificate please also supply a marriage certificate or other document which explains why your name has changed).
You will also be asked to upload other proofs including:
• proof of identity of other household members,
• proof of income (this means the most recent 2 months bank statements for all accounts and for all adults in the household including any adult children)
• copies of tenancy agreements,
• rent statements,
• mortgage statements (where appropriate),
• wage slips (where appropriate).
• A contract of work if your employment is your only local connection to our area,
(If you don't have any of these proofs or are unable to provide them in the correct format then please contact the Housing options Team on 0116 272 7770)
