On Monday we had our Right to Rent workshop with immigration and eligibility expert Sue Lukes and since then I have been pre-occupied with getting new content onto my Landlord Law site for members.
So far I have a (rather long) general information article, links to the government sites, a checklist and record form (which once completed can then be printed out and kept with the paperwork) and some FAQ.
The big job though is updating my tenancy agreements as there are some important ‘right to rent’ related clauses that need to go in. I am also now faced with the prospect of having to do separate sets of tenancy agreements for Wales and England. Heigh ho!
Incidentally – if you work for a Housing Association or Local Authority and need some training on the new ‘right to rent’ regime – let me know. We may be able to help.
