HMRC’s updated e-learning guide, Letting Out Property, is clear, flexible and easy to use. This comprehensive guide will benefit both new and experienced landlords. They have also introduced a ‘News’ section with the latest information from HMRC on property letting.
The Land Registry are encouraging landlords to sign up and get alerts should anyone undertake a search on their properties. Rented properties are considered to be more at risk of property fraud. Criminals have been known to use forged documents to try to take ownership of properties and the Registry says landlords are particularly at risk, with reports of fraudsters attempting to mortgage or sell properties without the owners’ knowledge.
Anyone can monitor up to 10 properties. Email alerts are sent when the Land Registry receives certain applications to change the register or for official searches. At this point the person monitoring the property can decide whether the activity is suspicious and whether they need further advice.

RESIDENTIAL TENANCIES MEASURES – IMMIGRATION ACT 2016 – NOW IN FORCE
From 1 December 2016, two further measures in the Immigration Act, which affect the private rented sector, come into force.
This means that:
- It is now easier for private landlords to evict illegal migrant tenants.
- It is now a crime to knowingly, or with reasonable cause to believe, let to illegal migrants.
These measures demonstrate the Government’s commitment to tackle illegal immigration, and its determination to take the necessary steps to protect public services and access to the private rented sector for lawful residents.
Further information on the measures and the Immigration Act 2016 is available on GOV.UK:
