New rules on Right to Rent Checks! – Part 2

There will be some cases where different checks will have to be made (for example, if the proposed occupier does not have a passport) and in this situation we will be happy to discuss the documentary requirements for establishing the occupier’s right to live in the UK. Broadly speaking, holders of UK passports, holders of EEA passports, holders of Swiss passports and others holding documents showing a right of abode or indefinite leave to remain in the UK will meet the new requirements.

For the avoidance of doubt, occupiers who are renewing a tenancy that started before 1st February 2016 are not required to satisfy the new checking regulations provided the parties to the original tenancy are the same as the parties who are renewing the tenancy.
