Student accommodation now made even more attractive by government

01 Feb 2016

From today, landlords are compelled to check on the immigration status of new tenants, and if they do not have the right to remain in the UK the landlord may be subject to a £3,000 fine

However, the government has specifically mentioned in the rules that student accommodation landlords are not subject to the new tenant checks

The rules are part of the government's plan to reduce net immigration into the UK, and means that traditional buy-to-let landlords (or their agents) must see the original documents stating that the tenant has the right to remain in the UK
