'How to Rent Guide'- February 2016 update

The Government has released an updated How to Rent guide to reflect changes introduced yesterday with the roll-out across England of Right to Rent checks.

The Government has released an updated How to Rent guide to reflect changes  introduced yesterday with the roll-out across England of Right to Rent checks.

The guide must be given by landlords and agents to tenants before the start of a tenancy. The guide can be given either via a link or a printed copy.

The updated guide tells new tenants that landlords and agents will want to confirm their immigration status. It says that Right to Rent checks must be made on all tenants aged over 18 who will be living in the property.

The guide explains that a failure by tenants to provide evidence of their right to rent  will mean that they cannot rent property in England.
