New ‘Easy Read’ version of How to Rent: the checklist for renting in England guide

On the 21st July 2021 the government published a new ‘Easy Read’ version of the How to Rent guide for Landlords and Tenants.

This is a shorter version than the full length guide and can be found by accessing this link:

It is unclear at the present time whether a landlord will be able to serve the ‘Easy Read’ guide on tenants as part of the prescribed information at the start of the tenancy instead of the full guide, and whether just serving the ‘Easy Read’ guide will ensure compliance with Section 21 Housing Act 1988.

For any landlord and tenant enquiries, please contact Fiona Hannaford or complete a contact form and we will call you back.
