Tenant Fees Act 2019
In England on the 1 June 2019, the Tenant Fees Act 2019 came into force, bringing to an end to upfront fees charged by landlords and agents to their tenants.
This Act also limited the levels of both tenancy and holding deposits – with most tenancy deposits capped at five weeks’ rent and holding deposits at one week’s rent.
For new tenancies signed on or after 1 June 2019 landlords in England were no longer able to charge for many services provided to the tenant, including: Referencing, Credit checks, Inventories, Assessing guarantors, Services - such as cleaning or gardening, and Administration.
The only charges allowed are for the replacement of a lost key or security device and a charge when rent payments are at least 14 days late. Landlords are also able to claim for damages where there is a breach of the tenancy agreement.
For existing tenancies at the time the Act came into force there was a 12-month transition period, which meant that any tenancies signed before 1 June 2019 were not subject to the new rules until 1 June 2020.
