I have received two tenants express an interest in the sponsorship of Ukrainian refugees which the Government has announced this morning. Whilst I admire their desire to do this, the legal landlord part of me wonders if this could have an impact on their tenancy? Would the refugee be classed as a permitted occupier, would they have any rights over the tenancy etc, as landlord do we have to undertake checks etc etc. I realise the detail of the scheme is probably not yet issued and I am sure the Guild will update landlords if any details which affects tenancies is released. I have also asked my local authority housing benefit team if the £350/month payments could impact tenants’ entitlements as well.
