    No, the right to rent checks apply before occupation and the offence is to not allow a person to occupy who does not have a right to rent.

    The statutory guidance says:

    A landlord is not required to take any action in relation to residential tenancy agreements entered into before that date, or which are renewed after that date if the renewed agreement will be between the same parties and there has been no break in the tenant’s right to occupy the premises.
