From 1 February 2016 private landlords must check the immigration status of prospective tenants as part of the government’s ‘right to rent’ scheme, initially piloted in the West Midlands and now being rolled out across the whole of the UK. The change will also affect housing associations making direct lets outside their local choice based lettings/nominations schemes and social tenants taking in lodgers.
With a century of experience equipping housing professionals with the skills they need to do the brilliant work they do, we can help you make the most of the new housing apprenticeships – whatever stage of the journey you are at.
