Tenant Fees Act 2019: Guidance for landlords and agents
New guidance for landlords and letting agents has been released by the government.
The Tenant Fees Act 2019, which applies to England only, will come into play from 1 June 2019 and applies to fees paid in connection with a tenancy of housing.
The act means that from 1 June 2019, landlords and agents will no longer be able to charge fees to set up or renew a tenancy in the private rented sector.
The new law will not just mean a ban on letting fees, but also the majority of other upfront fees payable by tenants to rent a property in England.
