Did you watch the leadership debate last Thursday? Whilst mentions of housing policy were few and far between, Ed Miliband did say that Labour would ban letting agent fees. Find out which other parties would do the same in our letting agents’ fees Housing Election video.
Whilst we’re talking letting agent fees, over the long weekend the Mirror called on the next government to ban fees. They say that if tenants continue to pay high letting fees, they’ll be renting far longer than they would be otherwise – “instead of saving for a deposit to buy our own housing, we’re forking out hundred of pounds on letting agent fees.”
