  • Yellow door
    Article: May 29, 2018
    By Rugby Lib Dems

    With support from the Liberal Democrats the Second Reading of the Tenant Fees Bill was passed by Members of Parliament on 21 May 2018.

    The Tenant Fees Bill sets out the Government's approach to banning letting fees paid by tenants in the private rented sector.

    Liberal Democrats have campaigned relentlessly to get tenants' letting fees banned. The upfront costs of renting are far too high, pushing many people into debt just to pay the fees, and stopping others from being able to move into a rented home.
