Government makes updates to “How to Rent” Guide


The government has updated the “How to Rent” Guide which letting agents and landlords need to issue to tenants at the start of the tenancy. Tenants who are currently already within a fixed term tenancy do not need to be issues with a new copy.


The government has also updated the “How to rent a Safe Home”, “How to Let” and “How to Lease” Guides. These guides are not mandatory to provide to tenants and serve more as helpful guides to landlords.
