I have 2 new tenants starting their new tenancy at the end of this month when they move down from Scotland. When they move in I will be on holiday and hence my son will do the check-in.
I believe the Right to Rent checks state I must meet with the tenants and check their documentation personally prior to signing the tenancy agreement or could face fines if they were subsequently found to be lying about their nationality.
Other than a flight to/from Scotland (or them postponing movers/flights) please could you advise on how I can meet the current legislation. My thoughts were ‘appropriate person carrying out the checks in Scotland’ i.e. solicitors, bank manager, OR could my son act as my agent (or his property company) and do the checks on my behalf when they arrive.
The irony is that the two tenants are university lecturers and hence the type of person who would generally be validating passports in the first place.
