Right to Rent checks from 1st January 21

Posted: 16th December 2020

Category: General

Because Brexit negotiations have gone on a little longer than expected (!), Government have confirmed that from 1st January 2021 to 30th June 2021 you do not have to undertake Right to Rent checks on citizens of the European Union, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein.

The update guidance can be found here.

It is expected that later in 2021 UK Government will release guidance on the new "points based" immigration system and what checks landlords will need to undertake after this extention.
