The Immigration Act 2016 New Provisions- Sanctions

On the 1 December 2016, a number of provisions in the Immigration Act 2016 will come into force.

If you let out mobile homes on your park for residential purposes, the Act requires that ‘right to rent’ checks, amongst other obligations, are carried out, before you enter into the tenancy agreement. The aim of the Act is to make it harder for individuals who have no right to be in the UK to rent private accommodation.

The provisions coming into force introduce criminal sanctions for Landlords, including Park Owners and their agents, who fail to comply with the right to rent obligations.

Failing to comply could lead to a fine or even imprisonment.
