πŸ“’ Self-managed Landlords! THIS IS SERIOUS⚠ Just 2 weeks to go before changes to Right to Rent checks and you need to get it right πŸ›‚

➑ The Home Office has released a draft revised Right to Rent Code of Practice in readiness for changes from 1 July 2021 πŸ“œ
➑ Brexit ended free movement from Europe on 31 December 2020 β›”
➑ On 1 January, a grace period began during which relevant aspects of freedom of movement were allowed - this period ends on 30 June 2021 πŸ›‘

πŸ™‹‍♂️ Okay, so what do Landlords need to do differently?

➑ From 1 July Landlords will need to be checking IMMIGRATION STATUS of all adult applicants βœ”
➑ As OPPOSED to their nationality ❌
➑ This includes all EEA, EU, or Swiss nationals 🌍
➑ Most EEA residents will have made an application to the EU Settlement Scheme and will have digital evidence of their status πŸ”’
➑ Tenants will share this evidence digitally using the online Right-to-Rent service https://lnkd.in/dxSz3aD πŸŒ
➑ The applicant provides a share code and their date of birth, which is inputted to reveal a status of unlimited or time limited status to remain 🚦
➑ Other EEA citizens will still hold a physical document: an endorsement in a passport, visa, or vignette πŸ›‚
➑ Digital status checks can be conducted by video call permanently πŸ“Ή
➑ Hard copy checks will need to be conducted in person 🀝

⚠ THIS IS SERIOUS! You could be sent to prison for 5 years or get an unlimited fine for renting property in England to someone who you knew or had ‘reasonable cause to believe’ did not have the Right to Rent in the UK ⚠
