comment What is a business center in a hotel?
@ChrisH, it is only a mitigation if you set it up yourself, or trust the person that did 100% along with everyone that may know the admin password etc.

You can buy a basic tablet for £35 that you can then use on the hotel's WiFi. If you can afford a hotel like the Hilton you can afford a tablet.

Firstly gmail is a BIG risk, and without a cell phone you can't set up 2 factor login.

comment How does the new landlord duty affect visitors to the UK?
@chx, do that in the UK, and the landlord may go to jail, hence in the UK we would rather leave someone to sleep in a shop doorway, then risk renting to someone without a 100% credit record and good job.

comment How does the new landlord duty affect visitors to the UK?
@phoog, the landlord can still not remove the tenant without using the correct court process at the end of the 6 months. Therefore the landlord needs a way to recover unlimited costs from the tenant or a “home owning guarantor”.

@RossRidge, yes it is jail! "Initially, the Immigration Act 2014 will impose civil penalties, but the Immigration Bill 2015 – currently going through Parliament – will bring in criminal sanctions of either fines or imprisonment" see landlordnews.co.uk/…

@phoog, "6 months rent in advance" does not help when the tenant then does not pay the rent and does not hand back the keys. The issue is that it can take 5 months to remove a tenant that is not paying rent as the UK court system is not on the side of landlords!

Depending on "excludes those not renting the property as their main home" would be a big risk for a landlord renting a property out for more then say 3 weeks. But allows 99% of "holiday home" lets to avoid having to do the checks.

However how is a landlord expected to know what none UK passport look like, yet the landlord is sent to jail if they don't do the correct check.....

@GayotFow, Why? What gives anyone a right to expect to be able to come to the UK?

comment Does the UK visa system discriminate against Muslims?
No, but at present there are lot of people from counties with lots of Muslims trying to use whatever methods possible to get into the UK. Therefore more checks are made on people from these countries. And as most of these people are Muslins, it looks like the checks are being made because they are Muslins. (I don't think a Muslin that is a citizen of the USA would get problems with a UK visa.)
