The Home Office has announced the expected rollout of The Immigration Act 2014 from 1st February 2016. 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.
Let Alliance can take the stress from you and your Landlords by confirming that a tenant has the right to rent from you and their ID is genuine. Our “Ultimate Global” tenant referencing service takes full account of the Immigration Act.
We also protect against any penalty that may be applied by the Home Office if the tenant has met our criteria under the Global Reference.
