My question is when are the checks supposed to be done the code of practice guide states “Right to rent checks on prospective tenants may only be undertaken and recorded up to 28 days before the tenancy agreement comes into effect”.
“Where a person has no time limit on their stay in the UK, checks may be undertaken at any point before the residential tenancy agreement is granted. However, where a person has a time-limited right to remain in the UK, checks should be undertaken not more than 28 days before the residential tenancy agreement comes into effect”.
Call me stupid, but does this mean 28 days before the date of the tenancy agreement? Or does it mean 28 days before the date of the ‘actual tenancy’ (they can vary) I assume when it states anytime before the tenancy agreement is granted means it could in theory be done just before the tenancy agreement is drawn up?
If anyone could just in simple language could say the proper way of doing it, I would be ever so grateful.
