The government stated their intentions to ban upfront letting fees that are charged by letting agents to tenants ‘as soon as possible’.
There is a government consultation on this matter proposed for 2017 (no date agreed as yet).
Any changes will then have to be passed through parliament.
The timeframe for any changes are uncertain, so there are no immediate plans for us to change our business model in any way.
We will provide more information to you on this matter as and when it becomes available.
