During the pandemic there has been an increase in home renovation due to people having more time to DIY, and the monotonous boredom of looking at the same 4 walls day in and day out. However, this makeover doesn’t have to stop indoors. If you live in rented accommodation, then you may not have the freedom to do whatever you please to revamp the garden.

From 1st July there will be changes to Right to Rent Checks in England. These changes come as a result of Brexit, which has ended free movement between the UK and the EU. Previously EU, EEA & Swiss nationals only had to provide evidence of their nationality to gain an automatic right to rent in the UK, however now that the UK has left the EU, this automatic right has been abolished. On 1st January 2021, a grace period of six months began which allowed EU, EEA, Swiss citizens and their family members to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme. This period ended on 30th June 2021 and from then, all EEA & Swiss nationals need to provide evidence of their UK immigration status, rather than just their national identification, to be allowed the right to rent in the UK.
