As part of our efforts to keep the website clean and your privacy safe from scams and fraud, that might occur by fake landlords or tenants that exploit various online platforms, we set a verification process to perform identity checks in order to prove the authenticity of users and to enable members and users of the platform to interact with each other more transparently and securely. Although it’s impossible to reach 100% protection from online scammers, verification of members grant another layer of protection and confidence when dealing with new people online.
How to get verified on RoomMatesBudapest?
Positive historical track record – Members of RoomMatesBudapest that have been publishing their property listings on the platform for more than a year, and that during this time did not receive complaints from other members, may be automatically verified or may ask for verification though the contact us form.
Users located in Hungary can schedule an appointment at our office to verify their ID by presenting 2 identifying cards (such as passport and driving licence), the property deed (in case they have a property to let and claim to be the owners), accessible phone number, home address, and the bank account number to which the rent is to be sent.
Users located outside of Hungary can have their accounts verified by sending a clear photo of them holding 2 recognisable identifying cards (such as passport and driving licence), the property deed (in case they have a property to let and claim to be the owners), accessible phone number, home address, and bank account number to which the rent is to be sent. In addition, they should deposit to our escrow account 50% of the deposit on their property. Once a tenancy agreement is signed and the tenant moved in, the escrow account will be released.
