The Home Office would enforce the proposed legislation in the course of its normal operations against illegal immigration. Where an illegal immigrant is encountered renting a residential property, the accommodation provider will be asked to prove that they have conducted any checks prescribed by law. Penalties would be served on non-compliant landlords who would be able to raise an objection. Where a decision to impose a penalty is maintained, the landlord would have a right of appeal through the courts.
