A "friend" wants to visit the UK for 6 months and stay along the south coast of Cornwall and Devon because of the photographic opportunities in this region. She contemplates renting a flat for the whole time in the interior (e.g., Exeter) and take day trips to the coast.
Possibly impacting her plans is recent legislation placing a statutory responsibility upon private landlords. Surely they wouldn't restrict a tourist from renting a flat for their holiday? Or would they?
How do these new rules affect visitors to the UK who want to rent a private flat?
