Sick Of Unfair Letting Agent Fees! Send A Letter To Your Mp In 30 Secs

Recommended Posts

I wrote to my LibDem MP about letting agent fees and AST lengths, she sent me a letter which was clearly the same one sent to everybody on this topic which basically said the private rental market is fine, tenants are free to negotiate any AST length their landlord will agree to, if the government regulates fees it will harm tenants by reducing choice and competition in the market etc.

Basically: you're wrong, everything is fine, and anyway you're on your own and don't expect me to help you.

Unsurprisingly she won't be getting my vote in 2015. She's in a marginal seat full of students and younger professionals, so I'm pretty sure she will be put to the sword over tuition fees.

I've just sent the letter to my Lib Dem MP.

I think I'll get an equally dismissive reaction like Dorkins'. My MP voted in May (?) to maintain the status quo re: private lettings fees. Unlike his honourable friend Dr. Julian Huppert, MP for Cambridge, who takes the issue much more seriously. Kudos. B)
