A bit about Right to Rent...

Under the Immigration Act 2016, landlords or letting agents have to see, check and capture proof of identity from tenants over the age of 18 who are living at a property as their main home. Usually, this would be a passport, ID card or biometric residence permit. Any landlord who knows or has reasonable cause to believe that they are letting a property to an illegal migrant could face increased penalties, including a fine of up to £3,000 per illegal tenant.

You have to make Right to Rent identity checks on all tenants, regardless of their nationality or ethnicity, 28 days before their tenancy begins. And if the tenant’s documentation is only valid for a certain time-period, you should make the necessary follow up checks too.
If you’re a landlord, you can ask your letting agent to carry out the checks for you but you must get this agreement in writing. If a tenant sub-lets the property without you knowing, they should make the checks themselves. 

A great place to start for more information on Right to Rent is the Home Office website.
