50% of landlords unaware of start date of right to rent

In Property Wire's article about right to rent, co-founder of urban.co.uk Adam Male commented on how it effects landlords:

There has been an influx of new legislation relating to the rental market made in recent years and we know that UK landlords are struggling to keep on top of these changes. Despite knowing many of the basics, many find it difficult to navigate the minefield of changing renting rights and wrongs and this is particularly so for accidental landlords. ‘It is great to hear that knowledge about things such as gas safety is a widely understood and implemented landlord legislation, however, there is still a long way to go in educating landlords about the varying aspects of renting, New regulations such as the Right to Rent have the potential to stop back door lettings and create a better environment for all, however, this will only happen if the scheme is communicated to landlords properly. We as an organisation want to do our bit to clean up the industry and help landlords protect themselves from significant financial risk,’
