Landlords becoming reluctant to rent to EU nationals due to Brexit No Deal worries
January 07, 2019 / Residential Landlords Association
Right to Rent is creating a hostile atmosphere in the UK’s private rented sector with more landlords refusing to consider renting to non-British nationals, including citizens from the European Union. Some 44% of private rented sector landlords are less likely to rent to those without a British passport, up from 42% a year ago, according to research from the Residential Landlords Association (RLA). But the research also found that landlords are reluctant to rent to European Union citizens due to concerns about Brexit. Some 20% of landlords said that they are less likely to consider letting the property to EU or EEA nationals, up from 17% in 2017.
