The tenant fees ban from 1 June 2019

From 1 June 2019 all upfront fees for tenants will be banned.

What you can’t be asked to pay

If you sign a new tenancy or renew your tenancy after 1 June, you can’t be asked to pay for:

  • referencing
  • credit and immigration checks
  • administration
  • renewing your contract

What you can still be asked to pay

The only fees that you can be charged will be:

  • for the cost of replacing a key if you lose one
  • if you are more than 14 days late with your rent
  • if you want to change your tenancy or bring it to an end

Who the ban applies to

The ban will apply to most private tenants. This includes if you have an assured shorthold tenancy, are in student housing or if you are a lodger.

If you sign a contract now to start after 1 June 2019, you can still be charged a fee before the ban comes in

If your tenancy has already started, the ban on fees will only apply if you sign a new contract.
