Autumn Statement Ban on Letting Agents Fees
As you are no doubt aware, the government has announced in today’s Autumn statement that they will impose a ban on letting agents charging tenants upfront fees.
Whilst no exact details and timescales have been released yet this move will undoubtedly change the lettings market as we know it.

We are also working on several exciting new developments which will hopefully counteract any potential negative effects today’s announcement will have on your business and also allow you to continue to offer your landlords complete peace of mind by using our referencing services without being out of pocket.
