Yesterday (09/07/18), Government launched a new version of the How to Rent Guide.
This series of guides form a key part of government’s crackdown on poor practice by a minority of landlords and agents in the private rented and leasehold sectors. Included in the new ‘how to’ guides is an updated version of How to Rent which landlords and letting agents are legally required to give to their tenants.
Agents must ensure they are issuing the updated guide to tenants in England when they start or renew their tenancies. Failure to do so will invalidate any future Section 21 action.
