Right to Rent

New Government checks for all tenants

As of February this year, all Landlords throughout England must ensure that potential tenants, of 18 years or over, are legally allowed to live in the UK and have the Right to Rent. This also applies to UK Nationals.

Right to rent checks have been introduced as part of the government ongoing reforms to the immigration system so Landlords who don't make the checks, could be fined up to £3,000 if they rent out a property to someone who's in the UK illegally.

If you are a Lemontree Landlord, you will have already been sent a transfer form confirming that we, as your agent, are fully responsible for completing these checks.

For more information, please either call our office and speak with a member of the Lemontree team or visit the GOV.UK website:
