New How to Rent Guide Issued
LANDLORDS, please take note:
On the 17th January 2018 the latest version of the Government How to Rent Guide was issued, so you need to destroy any old copies and use this one for all tenancies set up from the 17/01/18 onwards: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/674299/How_to_Rent_Jan_18.pdf
Getting this wrong could prevent you from serving a valid Section 21 notice if you need to evict tenants in the future.
On page 5 there is a change to the reference to providing the How to Rent Guide as a link, which has been replaced by a reference to providing it as a PDF in an email. The option for a link is no longer mentioned.
