The Government has now officially released information on the amendments to the How to Rent guide - the checklist for renting in England.This update means that landlords and letting agents must make sure that new tenants or those renewing, issue the correct version of the guide.

These are only minor changes, but the Deregulation Act 2015 made it a requirement for landlords and letting agents to serve on tenants the How to Rent guide.

Landlords need to make sure they have issued the correct version otherwise they will not be able to rely on any S21 served.
