For the last three years we have had 3 tenants, all friends, rent our property. Initially on an AST for one yr,m then a rolling notice period. We have permitted 2 of the 3 to leave the tenancy in Oct then Nov. of this year providing replacements were found. We paid for thr first exit inventory but gave notice that any further inventory costs would be on a shared cost basis, since we would normally expect only one cost when all three tenants left the house at the same time. We have paid for the entry inventory three years ago. I'd like to know whether the government's announcement preventing letting agents charge fees came in to force immediately, and if so whether this prior agreement with out tenants still holds given the additional cost burden on us.
