Right to Rent Checks post 30.06.21

The Brexit Transition is scheduled to end on 30th June. Please stay abreast of Government announcements of the impact this may have on existing and new tenancies with regard to Home Office Right to Rent Checks.
 

Before the start of a new tenancy, a landlord (or letting agent on behalf of the landlord), must check all tenants aged 18 and over, even if:

  • they’re not named on the tenancy agreement
  • there’s no tenancy agreement
  • the tenancy agreement is not in writing
Please note, it’s against the law to only check people you think are not British citizens. You must not discriminate against anyone because of where they’re from.
