Step 1: Request Verification Code

What should I do?

Hi Conrado,

Unfortunately we do require a verified UK phone number to register on the OpenRent site.

Landlords need a UK-based number since they need to be situated in the UK in order to show tenants around the property and manage the property once a tenant is found.

Further to this, from the tenant perspective we have found landlords are far less likely to respond to a foreign number, and for viewings, tenants must be in the UK to conduct a viewing. However, tenants can always use the “Message Landlord” button on our listing pages to contact a landlord without needing to verify a phone number. Verification is only needed to book a viewing, or use Rent Now.
