The monetary costs of renting in London are restricted, by the law in England and Wales (the Tenant Fees Act 2019). The only allowable costs that you as a Guest (legally speaking — a Tenant) or anyone acting on behalf of you, can be charged are:

  • Rent;
  • Holding deposits (a maximum of 1 x weekly rent);
  • Tenancy/security deposits (a maximum deposit of 5 x weekly rent for annual rent below £50,000, or 6 x weekly rent for annual rental of £50,000 and above);
  • Payments to change a tenancy agreement eg. change of sharer (capped at £50 or, if higher, any reasonable costs);
  • Payments associated with early termination of a tenancy (capped at the landlord’s loss or the agent’s reasonably incurred costs);
  • Where required, utilities (electricity, heating, gas or other fuel, water, sewerage), communication services (telephone, internet, cable/satellite television), TV licence;
  • Council tax (payable to the billing authority);
  • Interest payments for the late payment of rent (up to 3% above Bank of England’s annual percentage rate);
  • Reasonable costs for replacement of lost keys or other security devices;
  • Contractual damages in the event of the tenant’s default of a tenancy agreement; and
  • Any other permitted payments under the Tenant Fees Act 2019 and regulations applicable at the relevant time.

Any Guest fees or Tenant fees that you are charged must fall into one of the above categories, if they do not, then they are not permitted and must not be charged or requested from you. We adhere strictly to this, as per our legal obligations.
