On Saturday 1 June 2019, the Tenant Fees Act 2019 came into force, seeking to bring to an end to the ‘unfair’ charges and practices that tenants have faced to date.
The Act prohibits landlords and letting agents charging various types of fees to their tenants, such as administration and check-out fees.
The Act will apply to new tenancies entered into from 1 June and existing tenancies upon renewal. The Act also sets out a prescribed list of permitted payments that may be charged to tenants.
