Tenant Fee ban (1st June 2019)
The Tenant Fee Ban was a new law introduced on 1st June 2019 to protect Tenants and restricting what agents and landlords can charge. Here at Smart Move Residential, we are a responsible and reputable Estate Agent and we abide by the government’s guidance as highlighted in the Tenant Fee’s Act 2019.
Please Find a List below of permissible charges which will be applied should you enter into a tenancy agreement:
Holding/ Reservation deposit: An Estate Agent can charge you a maximum of equivalent to one week’s rent of your chosen property. We are legally only allowed to hold one holding deposit at any one time.
Security Deposit: Before your tenancy agreement starts you will be expected to pay a security deposit. All Tenancy Agreements entered into on or after 1st June 2019 are now legally capped at five weeks’ rent for any tenancy agreement up to the value of £50,000.00. Here at Smart Move Residential we only require our tenants to pay a security deposit for the equivalent of four weeks’ rent.
