For proof of residency, we always require that the proof of residency document is a current, within the last 30-days document and in your name in order for us to accept it as proof of residency. There are various forms of utility or service statements that can be provided. Sometimes, applicants will have a mailing address that is different from their physical address and a utility or service bill will provide proof of residency of applicants because both the mailing and physical address will be listed on the bill. Some examples of utility bills that applicants provide, and we can accept are their gas bill, power bill, water bill, internet bill, television bill, or telephone bill. If your bank statement has your current physical address listed on it, we can also accept your bank statement as proof of residency. If you own your house, you can provide your current mortgage statement for proof of residency as well. If you are renting, you can provide either your current rent statement or bill or a current and non-expired lease. In order for us to accept your lease as your proof of residency, the lease cannot be expired and, on a month-to-month extension of the agreement.
