Did you know that Right to Rent checks are changing?
From the 6th April 2022 people who hold Biometric residence cards and permit can no longer just manually show their documents. Like those with pre-settled or settled status they need to obtain a share code and then you can use the Home Office checking service to check their eligibility. Tenants can obtain them here https://www.gov.uk/prove-right-to-rent
There are no changes for those with pre-settled or settled status.
There are also some plans for British & Irish citizens who if they prefer will be able to submit their documents using digital technology known as Identity Document Validation Technology (IDVT). At the moment this is optional for Landlords and Letting Agents. However, manual checks are still acceptable and the Home Office have advised that there are no plans currently to make this mandatory. For bigger multi-national agencies it may make sense, but perhaps not for single branches.

Video right to rent checks remain acceptable and will end on the 30th September 2022.
