A few extra tips: Make the scan in a room with a lot of light. Make sure there is enough light on your ID and there is no shadow over it. Make sure there are no strange reflections. Keep your ID close to the camera, within the green frame as much as possible. Prevent your fingers from getting on the scan and not blocking any text. Make sure that the selfie resembles the picture on your passport as closely as possible; for example, if you don't wear glasses at the picture on your ID, don't do this when you take the selfie.

If you choose the answer 'No' then the living place will be shown on the platform only when it is ready to be rent out and not when is rented and occupied by a resident.
