star this property answer text <p>Not all letting agents charge fees for right to rent checks and when right to rent was rolled out in the West Midlands, it was found that the majority of letting agents were not charging a fee for conducting the right to rent immigration checks. Letting agents are required to be fully transparent about their fees and publicise a complete tariff of fees in their offices and on their website. The Government believes that full transparency gives consumers the information they need. We intend to carry out a review later this year into how well this approach is working.</p> more like this

The policy is designed to protect the resident labour market so that access to employment is prioritised for British citizens and lawful residents, including those granted refugee status.</p><p>Those who need protection are granted leave with full access to the labour market and mainstream benefits and can apply for settlement after five years. Refugees should apply for settlement before their five years’ leave expires – doing so will enable them to continue to work whilst their settlement application is decided. All settlement applications are considered on their individual merits.</p><p>We have no plans to change this policy.</p> more like this
