New immigration checks for landlords

July 1st, 2015, Blog

The Government’s proposals do not only affect migrant workers. They also impact on landlords, banks, employers, universities etc who are or will be required to carry out checks on migrants, failing which they will incur heavy penalties. Recent changes also impose new obligations on hospitals and marriage registrars. Details are set out below.

Landlords will face £3,000 penalties for failing to monitor the immigration status of their tenants or lodgers, as part of ‘right to rent’ requirements that will apply across England within months.
