What are right to rent checks?
A right to rent check is a check to make sure an individual has the permission to rent a property. This is currently only a requirement in England.
How do I complete the right to rent checks?
Normally the landlord will be responsible for performing this check even where they employ an agent to manage their properties for them. However, you can arrange to transfer responsibility for performing a right to rent check to your agent. This must be done in writing and cannot be agreed verbally. The NRLA has produced a document for our members who wish to perform this responsibility transfer. https://www.nrla.org.uk/resources/pre-tenancy/who-is-responsible-for-rent-checks
How do I record the right to rent checks have been performed?
Landlords must make a record of the date on which the check was made and retain the copies securely for at least one year after the tenancy agreement comes to an end.
