Let Alliance Right to Rent check

Let Alliance will take the stress from you and your landlords by confirming that a tenant has the right to rent from you and that their ID is genuine, protecting against any penalty that may be applied by the Home Office. Our Ultimate Global referencing service takes full account of the Immigration Act. 

Why you may need it

In line with the Immigration Act 2014, from 1st February 2016 all landlords and letting agents in England who allow a tenancy are required to make ID and Right to Rent checks on all adult occupiers. The scheme is compulsory 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 £3,000 per occupier.

Under Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014, a landlord must not authorise an adult to occupy property as their main or only home under a residential tenancy agreement unless the adult is a British Citizen, Swiss national, from a European Economic Area or has other proof of a continued right to rent in the UK. Landlords should carry out ‘right to rent’ checks for new tenancy agreements to determine whether tenants have the right to live in the UK legally. An applicant may have a time-limited right to rent if they are from outside of the UK or EEA and this can be proved using the correct documentary evidence:

  • Verify the ‘Right-to-Rent’ of a prospective applicant
  • Establish whether a ‘Right-to-Rent’ is continuous or time limited
  • Report to the home office in the event of expiry of the ‘Right-to-Rent’.

What it includes:

  • ID Validation
  • Follow-up checks for time-limited certification
  • Home Office checks
  • Residency confirmation
  • Financial Sanctions check
  • Electoral Roll confirmation
  • Politically Exposed Persons check
  • Protection against any penalty that may be applied by the Home Office if the tenant has met our criteria
