A ban on letting fees was announced back in 2016, so why isn’t it in place yet? Our infographic explains all…
The ban on letting agent fees to tenants probably won’t happen until 2018.
Although it was announced in November 2016, a lot has happened since then to cast doubt on the policy. The Government that announced the ban has lost its majority, the policy consultation has been cut short, and the MP who seems to have been entrusted with championing the ban is also the chairman and co-founder of Hunters Letting Agents!
Every day that the Government delays the ban on letting fees, renters across the UK are paying over £1m in letting agent fees. Feel free to share this post to try and put the ban back on the agenda!
