COVID Adjusted Right to Rent Checks Extended to 31 August 2021

Posted on June 21st, 2021 -

As a result of the government’s announcement on 14 June 2021 to extend the date for the easing of lockdown restrictions and social distancing measures, the temporary COVID-19 adjusted right to rent checks will now end on 31 August 2021. From 1 September 2021, landlords and letting agents will revert to face-to-face and physical document checks as set out in legislation and guidance. This will ensure landlords and letting agents have sufficient notice to put measures in place to enable face-to-face document checks.

COVID adjusted right to rent checks are carried out remotely as follows:

  • Asking prospective adult occupiers to submit a scanned copy or a photo of their original documents from two document lists (A or B) via email or using a mobile app.
  • Arranging a video call with the prospective occupier and asking them to hold up the document on screen to check against the copy you were sent.
  • Recording the date the check was made and marking a copy of the scanned document with the phrase “an adjusted check has been undertaken on [insert date] due to COVID-19” satisfied the tenant has a right to rent.

Many landlords have continued to check their prospective tenant’s right to rent in person throughout the COVID period, this is acceptable, the adjusted measures are a temporary alternative. There is no requirement to carry out retrospective checks on those who had a COVID adjusted check between 30 March 2020 and 31 August 2021 (inclusive).

On 01 June 2021, possession forms were updated on the government website to reflect the new 4 minimum month notice periods for Section 8 notices and Section 21 notices. 

The possession forms on the SWLA database were updated at 12 noon on 03 June 2021, if you printed possession forms prior to that time, please log back in and print again to ensure that you serve the correct notice to your tenant. 

If you served your tenant notice anytime after 4.30pm on Friday 28th May 2021, the new form will need to have been used. 

Remember to give a few days extra on your notice periods. If you give exactly 4 months, it can be thrown out of court to not giving enough notice to your tenant.
