Update on Tenant Fees
From 1st June 2019 letting agents have been prevented from charging prospective tenants
any fees when applying for a property.
Belvoir Shrewsbury rightly embraced this at its inception and will not charge
any prospective tenants fees to move into a property.
However, when applying for a property,
there will be a holding deposit of one week’s rent, refundable at the start of the tenancy.
Should you be applying for a property and the agent, or landlord charges you any fee,
you should report them to either Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) or Trading Standards.
