Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee
Inquiry launched on 16 November 2017. Report published. Government response published on 2 May.
The Communities and Local Government Committee conducted pre-legislative scrutiny of the Government's proposals to ban letting fees imposed by landlords and letting agents on tenants.
The draft Tenant Fees Bill (PDF 716 KB) was published on 1 November and according to the Secretary of State aims to deliver 'a fairer, more competitive, and more affordable lettings market where tenants have greater clarity and control over what they will pay and where the landlord is the primary customer of the letting agent'.
The Committee scrutinised the policy objectives, key provisions and likely impact of the draft Bill.
