Right to rent scheme

Dear landlord

We are an independent research company based in England working on behalf of the Home Office. We are currently conducting research on the new right to rent scheme which operates in parts of the West Midlands. Since 1 December 2014, private landlords, and their nominated agents, of properties in Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton, have been required to conduct checks to establish that new tenants have the right to rent in the UK. We would be very grateful if you could give 15 minutes of your time to help us better understand how the scheme is perceived and how it is working.

The survey can be accessed at:


by 31 May 2015.

All responses will be kept strictly confidential and used only as part of our analysis. We will report the findings to the Home Office, but they will not see your response and nobody will contact you about your answers to the survey.

IRIS Consulting Ltd is registered with the Data Protection Information Commissioner (registration number 1530265) as an organisation entitled to hold personal data for research purposes. If you would like to check our credentials, you can contact the Home Office research team (Rebecca Linley at
