A New Easy to read version of the “How to Rent” guide released by the Government (Please note this does not replace the existing “How To Rent” guide).

Posted on July 26th, 2021

A new ‘easy read’ version of the How To Rent guide has been released by Government.
Please note the publication of the ‘easy read’ version of the guide DOES NOT replace the current December 2020 version of the “How to Rent” booklet. Landlords should continue to serve the December 2020 version of the “How to Rent” booklet and only serve the easy to read one as a supplement to the original if needed. The Document is specifically designed to simplify the language and ensure that there is an option for the information in the guide to be accessible, if needed.

Landlords are reminded they MUST serve the latest version of the standard ‘How to Rent’ booklet at the start of a new tenancy. Also rules were brought in 5 years ago making it mandatory that If the document has been updated since the tenant moved in, then landlords also need to serve an updated copy on tenancy renewal, or the creation of a statutory periodic tenancy.
