The Government has updated the how to rent guide, effective from 24 March 2023. 

As a reminder, this guide has to be issued when a landlord lets a residential property on an assured shorthold tenancy before the tenancy is granted. Failure to serve the guide prevents a landlord from ending a tenancy using S21 of the Housing Act 1988 (i.e. two months no fault notice). 

The guide does not need to be issued where the landlord is a private registered provider of social housing, nor where a licence is granted.

So do make sure your processes and letting procedures are updated to take account of the new guide.
