Update on Right to Rent checks

Published: 11/10/2021

Further to our Prime Time blog on 14 July, the Home Office has announced that the Covid adjusted arrangements allowing Right to Rent checks to be conducted by video call (which were due to be phased out on 31 August) will now continue until 5 April 2022.
This is intended to minimise unnecessary contact while also improving the effectiveness of the checks. Some agents have returned to in-person Right to Rent checks regardless of the adjusted arrangements. We will continue video checks where this is the most practical method for our tenants but will also do in-person checks where Covid safety allows.
