Residential Tenancy Measures – Immigration Act 2016 – now in force

Posted on December 6th, 2016

From the 1st December 2016 there are two new measures in the Immigration Act that will affect the private rented sector.

  1. It is now easier for private landlords to evict illegal migrant tenants.
  2. It is now a crime to knowingly, or with reasonable cause to believe, let to illegal migrants.

This demonstrates the Government’s commitment to tackle illegal immigration.

For further information on the measures and the Immigration Act 2016 see the GOV.UK website, Residential Tenancies fact-sheet, Guidance on evictions, The Immigration Act 2016.
