Government tells landlords to start Right to Rent checks now
Landlords are being reminded that there is less than a month to go before Right to Rent goes live across England. The new law means that from 1 February 2016, landlords will have to carry out checks to ensure potential tenants have the right to rent property in the UK.
“Right to Rent is part of the Government’s wider reforms to the immigration system to make it stronger, fairer and more effective. Those with a legitimate right to be here will be able to prove this easily and will not be adversely affected. The scheme is about deterring those without the right to live, work or study in the UK from staying here indefinitely.”
