From today (June 30) European Union, European Economic Area and Swiss citizens will need to use the government’s new ‘View and Prove’ online service to demonstrate their right to rent.

Landlords need to be aware of the changes and anyone who is from an EU country, the EEA or Switzerland and has successfully applied to the EU settlement scheme or for a UK visa will need to prove their right to rent.

Property Manager Joe Rocks, explained: “Tenants affected by the legislation need to login to the View and Prove service and follow the online advice to generate a share code.

“They need to share this along with their date of birth with their letting agent. We can then take this information and input into the government portal to confirm the tenant has the right to rent.”

The government’s guidance notes state that in future everyone will be able to register for a UK Visas and Immigration account (UKVI)  which will allow them to access the View and Prove service.
