Property Renting Tip #6: Who are your Tenants?


The Immigration Act declares that it is an offence for any person to harbor illegal immigrants.

The Act sets out the threefold test of due diligence:

  • The defendant has required the person to produce the original employment pass or work permit or passport or travel document for inspection;
  • The defendant has checked that the particulars of the permit or pass correspond with the particulars of the passport or travel document; and
  • Where the employer is identified, the defendant has verified that the particulars of the person employed correspond with the employer’s record.
