This document sets out the government’s response and proposed approach for implementing the ban on letting fees paid by tenants, which will be taken forward through the draft Tenant Fees Bill.
The government announced at the 2016 Autumn Statement that it would consult on introducing a ban on letting agent fees paid by tenants, to improve competition in the private rental market and give renters greater clarity and control over what they will pay.
This consultation paper invites views and comments on how the ban on letting agent fees paid by tenants in England should be implemented and enforced.
