Information Sheet: Immigration Act 2016 (4) Right to Rent UPDATED 01 November 2016

The Immigration Act 2016 introduces further measures to restrict the right to rent accommodation, building on those introduced by the Immigration Act 2014.  These measures are aimed at creating a ‘hostile environment’ for those who do not have leave to enter or remain in the UK.  This information sheet explains the provisions introduced by the Immigration Act 2014 and how these will be extended by the Immigration Act 2016.

The information sheet has been updated on 01 November 2016 to take account of the second commencement order issued by the government, on 31 October 2016, bringing further provisions into force.
