Uckfield-based property letting company, Lampon Lets, has pledge not to raise landlords’ costs after the introduction of the Tenant Fee Ban next month.
The Government will be introducing the ban on June 1 to cut up-front costs for anyone moving into rental property.
From that date tenants will no longer have to pay for essential services like referencing, credit checks, guarantor forms and tenancy agreements.
Landlords may fear letting agents could try to recoup lost charges by raising fees but rental specialist Lampon Lets has promised clients that such charges won’t rise.
Lettings Director, Dominic Harris told Uckfield News: ‘At Lampon Lets we regard services, such as tenant referencing and the provision of professional tenancy agreements, as vital to the interests of landlords and tenants.
‘Despite the introduction of the Tenant Fee Ban, we will continue to carry out our administrative procedures to the same high standards.
“There will, of course, be no cost to tenants, nor will we be expecting our landlords to pick up the bill. I’m not sure all other letting agents will take the same stance.
‘Having never inflated our charges at Lampon Lets, we’re certainly not going to start now,’ he concluded.
