to have a tenancy agreement

Expert:  Remus2004 replied 4 years ago.
No.

There's no requirement in law to make any checks at all.

Its often a good idea to get things like references but you do not have to.

If you choose to let to a person who has not provided references then that is a matter for you.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my service either OK SERVICE or above and then I will give you related information for free.

You should have a buy to let mortgage.

If you have a residential mortgage then you have to disclose a letting to the mortgage company who may increase the interest rate.
