Residential Tenancy Right To Rent – 4 Video Tutorials

Private Tenancy - Right To Rent

LANDLORDS MUST BE AWARE OF THEIR LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES UNDER THE ACT [i]
4 ANIMATED EXPLAINER VIDEOS PREPARED BY EXPERIENCED IMMIGRATION LAWYERS [i]

Get to know your legal responsibilities as a landlord

Knowing and understanding your legal responsibilities could save you thousands of pounds each year. Landlords have to check the immigration status of all new tenants before they rent their property to them.  However, it’s now against the law to only check tenants you think aren’t British Citizens.

Check before you sign

Before you start a new tenancy, you must check the immigration status of all tenants aged 18 and over, even if:

  • they’re not named on the tenancy agreement
  • there is no tenancy agreement
  • the tenancy agreement isn’t in writing

Check all new tenants! It’s against the law to only check people you think aren’t British citizens.

Code of practice on illegal immigrants and private rented accommodation

Section 23 of the Immigration Act 2014 allows the Secretary of State to serve a landlord with a notice requiring the payment of a penalty of a specified amount where they have let property to an unqualified person in a private tenancy. Remember, the Home Office will expect you to comply with Code of Practice on illegal immigrants and private rented accommodation. You must therefore have systems in place to ensure you don’t breach the code.  Don't get caught out! The Home Office can visit your property at any time to check you are complying.
