Fees Ban, Deposits and Inventories (eLearning)

The Tenant Fees Ban, effective from 1st June 2019, has rendered all landlords and agents unable to charge any upfront fees to tenants. This includes referencing fees, admin fees and many default fees to name but a few. However, landlords still have the option to take a security deposit and recover any damages or loss incurred as a result of the tenant's actions.

The legislation around deposits remains complex, this course explains step by step what landlords need to do to comply. It also explains the importance of having a property inventory, even for unfurnished properties.


This course is designed to navigate the complex laws on deposits so that landlords can be confident in completing their own inventories, take and protect deposits and deal with disputes with ease. It also contains interactive content on the Tenant Fees Act and what landlords and agents can expect from this new law.

Please note: this course does not qualify you to become an inventory clerk.
