Landlords And Letting Agents In Line Of Fire As Tenants Join Fightback

Recommended Posts

Full article here.

With the average tenant now paying £757 a month, many are mobilising to campaign on everything from landlord evictions to the abolition of letting agents fees.
Letting agents' fees are a bugbear of all the tenant campaign groups. Fees for administration charges before a tenant moves in can run to several hundred pounds and often bear no relation to the work involved – yet the charges are completely legal, in England and Wales at least. New rules about fees come into effect on 1 November – but the charges aren't being banned as campaigners would like. Instead, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has ruled that these costs should be clearly displayed in adverts alongside rental prices.
