Right to rent and immigration inspections

Last updated: 14 June, 2024

As a landlord, you have a responsibility to restrict illegal immigrants accessing the private rented sector. Landlords are legally required to check identity documents for all new tenants and take copies. A wide range of documents can be used for the checks. The Government has worked closely with housing and homelessness charities to design a document list which can accommodate different individual circumstances. This includes where people do not have traditional identity documents such as a passport.

Fire, gas and electrical safety

Last updated: 14 June, 2024

Fire safety Fire safety measures are an important consideration for all rented property, as fire is more likely to occur in a rented property than in an owner-occupied home. The risk of a fire increases with the number of occupants and the government recognises that there is a particular risk of fire in houses in multiple occupation (HMOs), especially if the tenants do not know each other. All private sector landlords are legally required to install at least one smoke alarm on every storey of their rented property.
