Providing ID/salary information via email

Landlord is asking me to send passport/visa and latest payslips via email. Is this normal and fine to do or can/should it be done through the OpenRent website?

There are large fine imposed on landlords who rent to people who are not legally allowed to rent, so the landlord will want to check out your right to rent. Also they will want to check that you can afford the rent. Asking for wage slips is an easy way to do this. Ask for the landlords data protection policy, they should have one. If they do read it, it should put your mind at rest.
This is standard practise.
