We get regular questions regarding uploading documents.
To ensure optimal privacy protection, we kindly request that you submit your documents only when absolutely necessary. Documents are only required when we assign you a property. At that point, you have a 6-day window to upload the required documents in your Faster Renting account.
Submission and document verification:
You can upload your documents after being assigned a rental property, but not before. Following the allocation, our team meticulously reviews the documents, once you have signed the rental agreement and paid the starting invoice. We prioritize checking the documents of tenants who are scheduled to receive their properties in the short term, and so forth. Once our document verification is complete, the allocation becomes final. This will also refund your € 50 registration fee.
The iDIN check can be conducted promptly when starting the Faster Renting account, but it is only mandatory at the latest when a property is allocated. If you don't have a Dutch bank account yet or if your bank doesn't support iDIN, you can alternatively upload your ID proof (without any erasures). This is the traditional method of identity verification. Our system will then conduct a check. The ID proof will be promptly removed completely from our system after verification. This process can only occur after a property has been allocated to you.
