Landlord Right To Rent Checking, And What You Need To Know.

All Landlords must check that each resident is legally allowed to rent the property in question before any deals are finalised. You must ensure that the tenant is over the age of 18 and must provide a valid document for proof. Valid documents can include UK passports, birth certificates, a full or provisional driving license, ETC. All tenants must be checked regardless if they are a British citizen or not. If a tenant is only remaining in the country for a short amount of time you must ensure you complete the age check within the first 28 days of the renting process.

The checks that must be performed are as follows:

Follow-up Checks

If the tenant has a limited amount of time in the country the landlord must perform a follow-up check to ensure they are still legally allowed to live in the country. The Check should be performed either the day before the end of the tenants time within the country or 12 months after the last check has been performed. Failure to carry out these check could result in a fine.
