The clock ticks down: Fees ban will apply to all tenancies signed after June 1
Fees charged to tenants are to be outlawed on all new tenancies signed after June 1.
The long-awaited announcement of a date for introduction of the ban was made by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth, the Government’s housing spokesperson in the House of Lords, during the Tenant Fees Bill’s Third Reading yesterday.
He said: “Implementation is subject to the parliamentary timetables and amendments need to be considered in the other place [the House of Commons].
“We need to enable agents and landlords following Royal Assent to become compliant but we intend for the provisions to come into force on June 1, 2019.
“This would mean the ban on lettings fees would apply to all tenancies signed after this date.”
