The Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration (ICIBI) has announced the start of an official inspection of the Right to Rent legislation implementation.
This controversial legislation places the responsibility for checking, proving and recording a potential tenant’s right to live in the country onto landlords and letting agents.
The ICIBI is going to inspect the first phase of the roll out of Right to Rent in the West Midlands areas of Birmingham, Wolverhampton,Walsall, Dudley and Sandwell.
The inspection will include an evaluation of the Right To Rent sanctions and the Home Office’s performance in issuing civil penalties, pursuing criminal prosecutions, removing illegal immigrants and data sharing with other departments of government.
The issues not to be covered by the inspection are discrimination, increased homelessness or displacement.
A statement said the ICIBI : “is keen to receive written evidence from anyone who has knowledge and experience of any of the above areas. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
