Because the questions are a bit off-putting
Before that, here's the quick backstory:
The government announced last November that they would be imposing a ban on Letting Agents fees to Tenants as soon as possible.
Renters have been reaching out to government & saying, “We need this Tenant Fee Ban NOW” #NoFeesForKeys
These “admin fees” are supposed to cover such minor costs as reference checks, inventories and creating a Tenancy Agreement.
But many Letting Agents are charging several hundred pounds plus – and that’s on top of the big fees they already charge to the Landlord!
Hence the Government’s promised ban which requires a new law.
But Letting Agents (who work for Landlords!) are resisting the ban to preserve their extra gravy train and they have a lot of resources to make their case.
Their primary argument is that the ban will push up rents. We reject this argument.
Renters have this once in a lifetime opportunity to leave Government in no doubt that the proposed ban on Tenant fees should be implemented, without dilution or loopholes.
Tenants should not have to pay any fees to Letting Agents who are already being paid well by their Landlord clients. #NoFeesForKeys
Landlords can shop around for the best fee Renters cannot!
Tenants have to pay whatever fees the Agent demands or they lose the property.
Your voice will carry a great deal of weight on behalf of all tenants.
But there’s not much time left to make your feelings known.
You can use the Government's Online Response Form to provide a quick response by answering a couple of short questions.
But you might look at the 1st question and think whoaaaa! I don't even understand what that means!
