Social referencing at LRS stops illegal immigrants
Almost 2 million buy-to-let property owners will be legally responsible for ensuring that they only let properties to people allowed to be in Britain under new immigration laws to be announced in today’s Queen’s Speech – with fines running into the thousands for those breaking the law.
The Immigration Bill will also limit the ability of European immigrants to claim benefits and ensure that the right to reside in Britain on the basis of family commitments is not abused by criminals.
Temporary migrants will also be charged for using the NHS and only those who have lived in an area for at least two years will qualify for social housing.
For the past 3 years Landlord Referencing Services has been just that – the gate-keepers to all of our communities – and we therefore embrace the Government’s realisation that landlords are the key to keeping all of our communities free from anti-social behaviour and criminal activity, as well as controlling immigration.
The April 2013 Tenant Alert Statistics (exclusively recorded at LRS) reveal £130,000+ in rent defaults and property damages, uploaded via the LRS community.
Also, recent statistics show (in England & Wales) that overall drug use is most common in private rented accommodation – especially in flats and/or maisonettes.
Therefore, we call on all Landlords and Letting Agents in England, Wales and Scotland to join (<<click to join) the Landlord Referencing system today, in order to ensure that they only let property to those that are permitted to reside in Britain, as well as protecting themselves from bad tenants, and their good tenants from bad neighbours.
PLEASE BE CLEAR – LANDLORD REFERENCING SERVICES IS THE ONLY PLATFORM THAT PROPERTY PROFESSIONALS ARE ABLE TO USE PRIMARILY FOR THE FUNCTION OF PASSING AND RECEIVING UP TO THE MINUTE INFORMATION ON DEFAULTING AND/OR PROBLEMATIC TENANTS, DIRECT FROM THEIR PREVIOUS LANDLORD.
Landlord Referencing Services can offer membership, tenant alerts, document downloads, recommended property services advice & support completely “free”.
The Queen’s Speech, which sets out the legislative programme for the next year, is expected to contain more than a dozen parliamentary Bills. Measures to reform the state pension, cap the costs of long-term care, rehabilitate criminals and reduce regulations on business will be outlined. A National Insurance Contributions Bill will cut the cost of the tax for smaller firms taking on employees, and a Consumer Rights Bill will improve the rights of online shoppers.
So why not help yourself, your community, your best tenants AND the future of the private rented sector by joining our unique system today?
“If we don’t let them into our properties they cannot set roots into our communities, and without roots they cannot flourish”.
