RIGHT TO RENT CHECKS
As of the 1st of February 2016 it is now a legal requirement that landlords in England must check that any tenant living or moving into their properties has a ‘right to rent.’ Landlords, who are found in breach of the rules, will be liable for a civil penalty of up to £3000 per illegal tenant in occupation and or a possible criminal sanction. Our experts understand the impact of a breach of the right to rent can have on Landlords and Estate Agencies. Needless to say, the stakes are high with civil penalties and possible criminal penalties. Our ‘Right to Rent’ checks service provides you with protection against the levying of hefty civil sanctions or possible criminal sanctions. Our specialist ‘Right to Rent Team’, are on hand to offer expert advice if you are unsure of your obligation when looking to enter into residential tenancy with an individual. Our experts will ensure that you understand your new obligations so that you do not fall foul of this new law. We will provide administrative support by conducting the full checks on your behalf. All our ‘Right to Rent Checks’ are conduct by Immigration law accredited professional. We will check the veracity of all the immigration status documents of all tenants. Interview the tenants on your behalf, creating a right to rent compliance file for each tenant, and we will remind you when future checks are due.
