Immigration Status of Tenants

29th November 2014

As you may already be aware, private landlords will soon be required to check the immigration status of new tenants before granting a residential tenancy.
This will be done by landlords requesting documents from their prospective tenants to show that they have the legal right to live in the UK. The legislation will only apply to new tenants, so there is no need to check your existing tenants although checks will be required when renewing a tenancy.
We at Pure Property Management have already set systems in place to include this in our stringent credit & reference check process when a new tenant applies for a property, so leave it to our professional team!
