Q&A - Is it true that residential landlords can be held liable for tenant's behaviour?

Q: I have five rental properties which I manage myself as I am retired and don’t want to incur letting agency fees. Two of the properties are holiday lets and three have long term tenants. Until now I have not had any concerns about dealing direct with tenants myself, but I have heard a couple of worrying things recently that are making me reconsider. The first was that landlords can now be held responsible for noisy tenants and the second was that landlords are now being held responsible for doing immigration checks if the tenant is not a UK national. Are these things true?

Q&A - I am bankrupt can I still claim personal injury compensation?

Q: I came off my bike last year, when the front wheel went down a pothole in the road. I suffered a broken arm which prevented me from working for several weeks in the small bike repair business I own.
