The way that Right to Rent checks are conducted has changed.

If you are a fully-managed landlord with LPS, you don’t need to worry. We've got you covered as part of our service, but we wanted to let you know what the changes are.

Going forward, all landlords must carry out one of the prescribed checks before the tenancy agreement commences: 

  • A manual right to rent check; (as was conducted pre-covid)
  • A home office online right to rent check (For non-British or non-Irish applicants) or;
  • A right to rent check using a UK government-certified digital identity service provider (IDSP). Using one of these providers will mean that you don’t need to obtain any documents yourself.

There is no requirement for us to carry out retrospective checks on those who had a COVID-19 adjusted check between 30 March 2020 and 30 September 2022.

In conjunction with our referencing and credit check companies, our service has been updated according to the latest legislation and we will be guiding renters through the documentations they need to provide. As we said earlier, there is absolutely nothing that you need to do!

If you have any other properties or any contacts that may not be covered by recent legislation changes, please let us know and we’d be happy to help.
