    Indeed:. Only brought in as a sop against the kippers. Sensible countries don't have it.

    This is simply further evidence that the government doesn't know what it's doing.

    Right to rent checks aren't (and never have been) mandatory.

    The evidence that can be used as a defence if there is an issue is simply guidance.
    I have seen no evidence that anyone has been prosecuted under the legislation so the evidence standard has never been tested.

    And the government has been told that the legislation is flawed on the basis of human rights, so would find it difficult to bring a prosecution.

    That something as stupid and trivial as this can occupy brain space in government is frustrating.
    The people involved in this decision and broadcasting the update would have spent their time better putting some bleach on a bench in a park.

    On this particular topic I can only report what I know.
    Personally I believe the intent is good but it’s practicalities particularly with what is being required of the general public can become somewhat confused.

    Clearly with all these people being repatriated @ £75m & so many homeless, accommodation needs to be found - fast! I expect the many councils "told" to re-house the homeless have explained reality to Bozo.

    How about credit checks and employment income

    This sounds like poor communication between Government departments when MHCLG are advising that no-one should be moving home during the lockdown!

    Temporary Relaxation of Rules on Right Rent




    Right to rent rules have been relaxed during the coronavirus outbreak so that landlords and tenants do not have to meet in person to carry out the checks.
    Under the temporary rules, tenants can scan and send copies of their identification or residency paperwork to their landlords which can then be checked for authenticity using video calls instead of a face to face meeting.

    Employers can use the same process to carry out right to work checks.
