The Residential Landlords Association’s Landlord Advice Team is being inundated with calls about the new Right to Rent legislation that has come in today.
Right to Rent checks for new tenancies in England require landlords to check the immigration status of all adults who will be living in their properties.
You can read more about Right to Rent here.
The How to Rent guide is a Government document produced for tenants, which has been updated today due to the new Right to Rent legislation.
Landlords must give all tenants the most up-to-date copy of this guide when they move in or risk losing their Section 21 rights to reclaim possession.
A new copy was issued today to take account of Right to Rent and can be viewed here.
