Just a quick ‘heads up’ on the Immigration Act 2014.
I was browsing through the DCLG website last night and found this announcement quite by chance when I was looking for something else.
The bill received the Royal Assent on 14 May.
Information about the final form of the bill is hard to find – I can’t see it on the Legislation UK website yet – no doubt it will go up soon.
This is what is says in the ‘highlights’ summary on the DCLG site:
Requiring private landlords to check the immigration status of tenants, preventing those with no right to live in the UK from accessing private rented housing
Presumably there will be a commencement order somewhere. If anyone knows anything can they leave a comment?
