The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has published a Right to Rent guide for landlords with a basic checklist designed to confirm if a tenant has the right to rent and stay, backed up with a guide for the documents required to provide evidence.
“Find out if someone can rent your private residential property in England. You must check anyone aged 18 or over who pays to use your property as their main home, for example, tenants, sub-tenants and paying house guests.
You might get a fine if you rent your property to someone who doesn’t have the right to rent.
If you’ve bought a property that already has tenants, you need proof that their last landlord did the check. You’ll still be responsible for carrying out further checks on your tenants in future.
Because of coronavirus (COVID‑19) there are temporary changes to the way you can check documents. These changes include asking for documents digitally, making checks on a video call, and what to do if someone cannot provide any accepted documents.
Read more about the right to rent documents you can accept.
