Tenant Fees Ban Toolkit


From June 1st 2019, landlords and agents are no longer able to charge a number of fees in England for new tenancies signed on or after that date.

The tenant fees ban is wide ranging and will effectively bar most fees from being charged. Landlords and agents will only be able to charge for payments defined as permitted in the legislation.

This guide will act as a primer for landlords and agents to help them prepare for these upcoming changes. In it we offer practical tips on how to deal with the new legislation, as well as a number of document templates to help comply with the fee ban.

The rest of this guide is exclusive content for people who have registered their details on our website. It contains guidance on what tenant fees can and cannot be charged, what the penalties are for landlords and agents, guidance on dealing with deposits after the tenants fees act and a number of other practical tips.

For full members of the RLA there are also a number of documents available to help deal with the ban on tenant fees.
