The Government has updated the How to Rent guide which was launched last month. The How to Rent guide is designed to help tenants understand the process of renting a property in the private rented sector. It outlines what they need to expect in terms of costs and what they should expect from their landlords in terms of paperwork.
The new guide is called How to rent – the checklist for renting in England. With immediate effect, you must ensure that you are issuing the updated guide to tenants in England when they start or renew their tenancies.
The guide can be given as a hard copy or sent by email. It is best viewed online as it contains hyperlinks.
Failure to do so will invalidate any future Section 21 action. You can download the new guide on the link below.How to Rent guide
