Landlords to Help Crackdown on Illegal Immigration

New measures to crack down on illegal immigration in the UK could mean that landlords will be expected to evict tenants that fail asylum applications or lose the right to live in the UK.

Landlords will be given the right to end tenancies without having to worry about obtaining a court order, but only when a tenant has lost the right to live in the UK. Landlords also face having to check a migrant’s status before they agree to a lease – those who don’t, or those who knowingly let properties to illegal immigrants, could face up to five years in prison.
