Official government guidance for tenant fees ban released

In the past, I only charged the fee I had to pay for registering the deposit. So I take it even this will now be illegal to recover from the tenant?

It's my opinion that the Government's intention was to massively reduce the PRS thus releasing rental properties back to the market for sale, probably in order to reduce property prices and increase 1st time buyers. Well, It was a good plan in a way since they are achieving just that! Even as a landlord, I can see the logic. We have a choice, either accept what is happening or get out.

I heard the news, that of all buyers within the last year, 50% were 1st time buyers, which is great really!
