WHAT IS RIGHT TO RENT?

 

The new Right to Rent legislation was introduced by the government in February 2016. The Home Office has produced a document to give you advice and guidance on the requirements under this legislation. 

 

The following article appeared in Housing Matters, Issue 111, which is a bulletin produced by the National Homelessness Advice Service, and their authorship is acknowledged. Whilst the article was written for housing advisors, we believe that the contents are also useful for landlords and agents. You can view this article by clicking here.

 

You can also access infomation on the Right to Rent legislation, including useful tools and resources, by visiting the gov.uk website https://www.gov.uk/check-tenant-right-to-rent-documents/who-to-check

 

There is also a user friendly guide that outlines the specific documents that a landlord may request from students to assess their 'right to rent', which can be dowloaded from the gov.uk website

 

 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR STUDENTS?


The new legislation will also impact on students as landlords will now have to carry out checks on your identity and immigration status to ensure you have a 'Right to Rent'. Details about these checks are detailed in this factsheet.

 

A useful article on the impact on students, also appeared in Housing Hand, Issue 111, and can be viewed by clicking here.
