Guys I'm freaking out. I think I've lost my passport and we have to sign for our house ASAP but they want student card and passport as ID and I think I've lost mine!!! Absolutely trashed my bedroom searching for it and found everything except my passport!! I have a scan of my passport and my expired one but I'm afraid this won't be enough and fear losing the house. Told my housemates are they're all mad at me, I don't know what to say to the estate agents. Do I just tell the truth and hope they'll accept the scan along with a birth certificate or something? I feel so stupid.

You see ns_2 , if you care about your citizens then you should vote for my petition and help people like this get another one for cheaper.

I think unless you find it, you'll have to tell the truth so that they can sort it out - don't rely on the ID you currently have because, as you say, it may not be enough. I really hope you do find it though.

In the meantime, you're going to have to apply for a new one and quick! In future, please please buy a safe so this kind of situation doesn't happen to you again!

An ID scan of passport should be fine [so long as it's in date]

when I rented a room the landlord didn't ask for the physical passport. He just asked me to send him a scan.


I suggest you stop seeing the estate agents in person, so when they ask you for the passport they are more likely to ask for you to send them a scan via email, rather than photocopy it themselves. If you are going to see them in person most likely they will want the physical copy.
