Letting agents forced to come clean about rip-off fees

The Advertising Standards Authority has announced that letting agents have until 1 November to include clear information about their fees when they advertise properties for rent.

While we want to see an end to all letting agents fees for tenants, as is the case in Scotland, this move should at least force letting agents to be more honest about how much they’re charging – and help expose who the worst culprits are.

If you spot letting agents that are in breach of the new requirements after the 1 November deadline, or that are charging especially high fees, we’d love to know. Drop us a line at letdown.action@gmail.com.
