Bournemouth , Poole Landlords and Tenants: What does the Tenant Fee Banning order mean for you?

• Tenant Fees set to banned within 12 months

• Rents could rise as those fees passed to Landlords

• Landlords won’t be worse off – and neither will tenants if you join PRIMOVE.

With our new Chancellor of the Exchequer revealing a ban on tenant fees in his first Autumn Statement on Wednesday what does this actually mean for Bournemouth tenants and landlords?

The private rental sector in Bournemouth forms an important part of the Bournemouth housing market and the engagement from the chancellor in Wednesday’s Autumn Statement is a welcome sign that it is recognised as such. I have long supported the regulation of lettings agents and fair fees which will ensconce and cement best practice across the rental industry and, I believe that measures to improve the situation of tenants should be introduced in a way that supports the growing professionalism of the sector. Over the last few years, there has been an increasing number of regulations and legislation governing private renting and it is important that the role of qualified, well trained and regulated lettings agents is understood. PRIMOVE charges fair fees , no hidden charges and no management fee or commission. Please visit our website
