Immigration Act

The Immigration Act 2014 brought in a wide range of new obligations that Landlords must comply with. Landlords must now keep evidence that their tenants have the correct immigration status to be able to rent a property in the UK. Failure to comply with these laws may result in Landlords being fined up to £3,000 per tenant. Failure to carry out checks properly could lead to Landlords facing:

  • Costly Civil Penalties of up to £3,000 per tenant

  • Loss of professional reputation

  • Expensive delays in getting tenants into properties

  • Uncertainty over how to comply with a complex set of laws and guidance

  • Increased administrative burden due to the requirement to retain all documents for inspection
