Acceptable verification documents
You can provide any one of the documents showing your name and residential address. Unless otherwise stipulated, the documents must show your full residential address and not a post box address:
Cohabitant or spouse of a homeowner
It may be that you live with another person, such as a spouse or life partner, and your name is not reflected on any of the documents required. Proof of the relationship between you and that person must be provided together with a relevant verification document reflecting the homeowner's name and the residential address.
In the case of a husband and wife, a marriage certificate is an acceptable document to prove the relationship between the co-habitants.
In all other cases, written confirmation is required from the homeowner confirming:
If you are a student residing at a student residence, hostel or boarding house and are unable to provide proof from the homeowner, a written statement from the educational institution or the residence, hostel or boarding house confirming your residence at the physical address of such residence is acceptable.
