Landlord Fees…..

 

From 1st June 2019, the Tenant Fees Act 2019 officially ended most fees charged to tenants and for many landlords, this will likely lead to an increase in the amount they pay to their letting agent. Unlike most agents, we are not having to significantly increase our charges, because we haven’t been charging our tenants any fees (apart from the cost of referencing and check-outs) since the Tenant Fee Ban Bill was announced in 2017! So we are not increasing our standard fees and will only be passing the cost of referencing and end of tenancy check-outs to our landlords.
