Know Your Customer

Validate the identity of an individual quickly and conveniently with Rent4sure’s Know Your Customer service.


Verify Identities in Seconds

Know Your Customer is the solution to safer tenancies, adding security and confidence to your business by providing a key insight into your prospective tenants.

Now you no longer have to rely on the information that applicants want you to see because Know Your Customer uses the latest technology to provide an authoritative profile of your applicants, allowing you to verify their identity in seconds.

Rent4sure’s Know Your Customer identity checks are detailed and comprehensive with a clear result. You’ll quickly know whether your tenant has passed or failed.

In-Depth Searching

With Know Your Customer you’ll receive the most reliable and up to date results available, using all accessible information from multiple sources. You can simply add our Know Your Customer Check to your usual reference or, if you prefer, order this key service independently from your Agent Suite.

The search information is rigorous and when used as part of your usual Anti-Money laundering checks it helps you conform to regulations. This gives you the confidence to know all reasonable steps have been taken to verify an applicant’s identity and reduces the need to take paper-based documents other than a photographic ID, which you are still responsible for.


How does it work?

Our Know Your Customer checks consist of 3 search criteria: proofs of residency, proofs of identity and any alert notifications.

Residency

Using a name and address, this criteria will search the BT telephone database, credit agreements, court data and the Electoral Roll. An applicant requires at least 2 proofs of residency to pass.

Identity

Using a date of birth and/or telephone number, this criteria will search the BT telephone database, credit lenders and the Electoral Roll. An applicant requires at least 1 proof of identification to pass.

Alerts

This criteria will search lists of Halo (Deceased), HM Treasury Sanctions, Office of Foreign Asset Control and Senior Political Figures. The applicant must not appear on one of these lists or the report will fail.
