As of today, 1st February 2016, all private landlords in England will have to check that new tenants have the right to be in the UK before renting out their property. These are known as Right To Rent checks.
Checks will need to be made on the status of any prospective tenants, and other authorised occupiers, to determine whether those parties have the right to occupy the premises before granting a tenancy.
A check may be undertaken and recorded up to 28 days before the tenancy agreement comes into effect.
For more information or advice on what this means to you, please read our blog on Right to Rent Checks.
