This is a reminder that the new letting fees legislation came into effect today. As of today, neither letting agents nor landlords can charge letting fees to tenants.
Tenancy Services has produced two 10-second video ads to inform landlords and tenants about the change in legislation, which you will be able to see these on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube over summer.
The first one is on our Facebook page today, and we encourage you to share it with your own communities and networks: letting fees Facebook post
