Since the 1st February 2016 the Government has required landlords to carry out immigration checks on individuals renting properties within England, or be subject to potential fines of up to £3,000. For Tenants this could lead to:

  • Lengthy delays in rental applications, while documents are verified
  • Rental applications being refused
  • Other complications for immigration status

Providing your Landlord with a Right2Rent Verification Certificate along with your original documentation will immediately prove your right to rent, leading to:

  • Fewer delays
  • Rental applications being approved
  • No unforeseen issues with the Home Office

Important Update

As of the 1st July 2021 we are no longer able to carry out manual checks on EU nationals to confirm a right to rent.

From 1st July 2021, the majority of EEA citizens will prove their right to rent using the Home Office online service. Those who have made a successful application to the EU Settlement Scheme will have been provided with an eVisa and can only prove their right to rent using the Home Office online service ‘prove your right to rent in England’ available on GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/prove-right-to-rent.

To prove their right to rent from 1st July 2021, individuals will provide landlords with a share code and their date of birth which will enable landlords to check their Home Office immigration status via the online service available on GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/view-right-to-rent.

We are still able to carry out manual checks for non EU nationals and family member of EU nationals in some instances, if you are unsure whether your prospective check meets this criteria please contact right to rent at enquiries@right2rent.co.uk.
