Banning letting agent fees paid by Tenants

“The Government has now published it’s consultation on Letting Agent’s fees paid by tenants.  This consultation was flagged up in the White Paper “Fixing Our Broken Housing Market” and seeks views on banning such fees – with the possible exception of fees for agents who provide “bespoke, non-standard services to tenants at the top end of the market” – and how such a ban could be enforced.  The White Paper suggests that penalties could include fines of between £5,000 and £30,000.
The consultation is open until 2 June 2017 and can be accessed at to read more.
