Today (1 June 2019) the Tenant Fees Act 2019 commences in England.

To coincide with this, the legally required How to rent: the checklist for renting in England has been updated.

This How to Rent guide is the prescribed information must be given to all new tenants as well as renewing tenancies if the guide has changed since it was last given.

The updates are basically giving the tenant information about the new tenant fees ban and also includes brief information about the new deposit cap and holding deposits.

Our Tenancy Builder was updated yesterday although it was later in the evening. In order to ensure your tenants have the latest version, you can edit any you’ve done recently which haven’t signed up yet and when the updated agreement is produced, it will include this latest updated version of the guide.
