law_icon-150x150

The new Right to Rent immigration checks are coming into force on the 1st February 2016.

As a landlord are you ready for these changes?

It's important that you make sure any new tenancies are checked from the 1st of February. You can appoint your agent to do it but you need to get their agreement in writing.

Basically you must check that your tenant or your lodger has the right to rent in the UK. This is done by checking their original documents, you then need to make a copy of these documents.

If you don't do the checks you are liable for a large fine or even imprisonment.
