At PJH, we have systematically charged low fees and so we have decided not to wait until June 1st and to offer free rentals now. Before you declare yourself ready to use the service of a rental agent, make sure you know whether or not the agent charges the fees. If they do, you`ll find out how many and if they`re willing to give up the tax. Depending on the activity, they may be willing to reduce costs. I would send it in writing, even if 🙂 WHAT IS A NEW LEASE AND WHAT IS NOT? The fee ban applies to Tenancies d`Assuranced Shorthold (ASTs). If your rental is renewed and a new contract is signed after June 1, 2019, the rental agent will not be able to collect any additional fees and will have to reimburse your departure costs if these were levied at the beginning of the lease. However, if the lease continues at the expiration of the limited term (the so-called “periodic lease”), your rental agent may continue to charge a fee until May 31, 2020 if it is due in accordance with the terms of your rental agreement. . .
