VALIDATE & RIGHT TO RENT
The Right to Rent scheme is the governments latest initiative to clamp down on illegal immigrants living in rental property. Similar to the Government’s Right to Work legislation, the rules ensure those who rent have a right to be in the country.
This legislation expect landlords to perform certain checks on prospective tenants to see if they have a right to rent in this country. If they don’t, and a property is rented out, landlords could face a fine of up to £3,000 per tenant found to be living illegally.
VALIDATE is similar to the VALIDATE - TENANCY AGREEMENT SYSTEM which, has been developed for several London Borough Councils Social Housing projects to assist in combatting tenant fraud.
Whilst primarily a desktop system, the optional VALIDATE can be configured for "off-site" verification using mobile technology. The system can also be customised to integrate with a number of commercial and home-grown database systems.
