POST DESCRIPTION

The Home Office has announced the expected rollout of The Immigration Act 2014 from 1st February 2015. All landlords and letting agents in England who allow a tenancy will be required to make ID and Right to Rent checks on all adult occupiers.

The new scheme will be compulsory from 1 February 2016 and makes it mandatory for anyone who rents out private property in England to see and make a copy of evidence that any new adult tenant has the right to rent in the UK, be this continuous or time limited. Landlords or agents who fail to do these checks correctly could be liable for a fine of up to £3000 per tenant.
