What are your first-hand experiences with Right to Rent?

Friday 20 January 2017

JCWI is keen to hear from ARLA members what their experience of Right to Rent has been so far.

JCWI whose mission is to promote justice, fairness and equality in immigration and asylum law and policy, have been closely monitoring the right to rent scheme, that requires landlords or their agents to check the immigration status of tenants.

Their research so far has mainly received responses from landlords, many of whom are worried about navigating the scheme without risking a fine or possible imprisonment.

They are anxious to learn from letting agents, what their experience of the scheme has been, and particularly, whether they have found that landlords require expert assistance in dealing with right to rent issues.

Please complete this short survey on the right to rent scheme.

This is a one page survey that should not take more than five to ten minutes to complete. 

The deadline for responses is Wednesday 25 January
