The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) has published updates to their guidance for people across the UK, who intend to offer accommodation to those fleeing war in Ukraine. The guidance outlines that the scheme is a bespoke arrangement of non-paying guests, so sitting outside the usual tenancy regimes. Registration sits at the heart of the scheme. Those registered will receive updates and information on the checks that DLUHC will make on both sponsors and Ukrainian nationals. The UK Government has made it clear that tenants must ask permission from the landlord if they wish to be a sponsor. Additionally, the scheme requires the accommodation to be self-contained or comprise at least a spare room that is unoccupied.
