New Tenant Fees laws = new problems for landlords?

From memory there is a clause that says you are allowed to charge a small fee if the prospective tenant provides any information at time of application that turns out to be false and so time is wasted due to the false information.
If this is the case why not ask if the prospect would pass a reference check and if they have any reason they wouldn’t pass the reference checks. If they say no and the reference comes back as a fail then you can charge them the small fee to cover the cost of referencing because they provided false information.
If the reference comes back as a pass then the landlord would cover the cost of the reference and accept the tenant.
