The Immigration Act 2016 New Provisions- Possession

On 1 December 2016 the Housing Act 1988 will be amended by the Immigration Act 2016 to include additional grounds on which the court must grant possession of the property.

These additional grounds relate to the immigration status of adult tenants and could be of relevance to park owners who let mobile homes for residential purposes.

The Court will have power to give possession of property, following service of a notice from the Secretary of State to the Landlord that an adult tenant(s) is disqualified from occupying the property due to their immigration status.

The tenant will be considered disqualified if they are not a relevant national or do not have the right to rent the home.
