A very quick post with apologies for the lack of detail.
As you may have seen on the news, the Queen’s speech today has announced proposed legislation by the government to ban letting agents from charging fees to tenants. This still has to go through parliament of course, but as the BBC news website points out, (here) this is something that all three of the main political parties included in their election manifestoes. So the idea has clear cross party support.
We will post on this again when we have more information.
