Right to Rent, which also applies to people who are subletting their property or taking in lodgers, was introduced in the Immigration Act 2014. Landlords who fail to carry out checks risk a potential penalty of up to £3,000 per tenant. The scheme has been in operation in the West Midlands since December 2014, and extending it across England is the next phase of a UK-wide roll-out.
The roll-out of Right to Rent has been informed by input from a panel of experts from trade bodies, local authorities, housing charities and the Equality and Human Rights Commission and backed up by stakeholder events with landlords and agents.
