Private landlords in the East Midlands will face fines of £3,000 if they fail to check their tenants immigration status and ensure they have the right to rent in the UK.

The first phase of this scheme will be launched on the 1st of December and will run in Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton. Landlords in these places will be required to check the immigration status of adults entering a new tenancy.
