PRESS RELEASE Tenant Fees Act comes into effect tomorrow

David Cox, Chief Executive, ARLA Propertymark comments on the upcoming Tenant Fees Act, coming into effect tomorrow, 1st June 2019:

“The Tenant Fees Act comes into force tomorrow, and agents should already have implemented the correct changes within their business in order to be compliant with the law. Members should refer to our Tenant Fees Toolkit for relevant advice, information, and legal documents that have been produced with the ban in mind. Although the Tenant Fees Act has been front of mind for a while, it’s important members stay up to date with other laws and local licences that are being introduced, as a breach of the ban can result in a large fine, so it’s vital agents get this right.”
