On 1 February 2016 the parts of the Immigration
Act 2014 dealing with a ‘right to rent’ came into
force in England and Wales.
Under the scheme, landlords must not allow a
person/s to occupy premises unless they have a
”right to rent”. You can be fined for breaking the
law, but you will have a defence if you take proper
steps to check the identity and immigration status
of people authorised to live at your property.
Abacus Lettings will ensure that all the necessary
checks are undertaken to ensure prospective
tenants have the legal right to rent your property
