We ran a very successful training day on Monday with the lovely people at Cambridge University Accommodation Office.
They wanted some guidance on general tenancy issues (which I can cover) but also some information about the new immigration ‘right to rent’ rules coming into force next year.
As Sue Lukes is the Queen of Immigration and Eligibility I arranged for her to come along and do a training session in the afternoon.
It was a good day and we were able to help the Accommodation Office staff sort out a few niggling problems about tenants rights and what they could do about certain problem tenants.
During Sue’s presentation on we were also able to identify some serious problems that they will have if the right to rent check rules come into force nationally in their current format.
This will give them a chance to make representations to the evaluation committee who are dealing with the current pilot.

Nicky Blanning says
Our trainers, Tessa and Sue, provided us with an excellent bespoke day of learning. It enabled all of us to understand in more detail the relevant housing legislation to enable us to help our own landlords and tenants.
We also had time to gain answers to some specific issues that we had. Sue explained the proposed legislation on immigration checks and its potential impact on landlords, if it comes into force.
Tessa and Sue have considerable knowledge and experience, which they impart in a relaxed style. We all enjoyed our day enormously.
