Under Section 22 of the Immigration Act 2014, from the 1 February 2016, all landlords in England must conduct Right to Rent checks for all new tenancies to determine whether any occupiers aged 18 and over have the right to live in the UK legally. As part of the referencing process, a tenant’s Right to Rent in England will be verified.
