Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee
The deadline for submissions was Thursday 14 December. Please contact the Committee if you need to send evidence late.
The Communities and Local Government Committee conducts 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 scrutinises the policy objectives, key provisions and likely impact of the draft Bill.
Evidence given by i and ii) Heather Wheeler MP, Minister for Housing and Homelessness, Becky Perks, Private Rented Sector Policy Lead, and Anne Frost, Deputy Director, Private Rented Sector Division, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
