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
