Government begins tweeting that it’s banning letting agents’ fees

The government has started tweeting that it is to ban letting agents’ fees in England – but still isn’t revealing when the measure will take effect.

Alongside a video tweeted from the official account of Prime Minister Theresa May – @theresa_may – is the statement: “I’ve made it my personal mission to fix our broken housing market – and that’s just what this government is doing.”

The video, which has a musical soundtrack and begins with the Conservative Party logo, then lists five policies of the government including: “Banning letting fees for tenants in England.”

The other policies, which include the first time buyer stamp duty cut and the continuation of Help To Buy initiatives, appear to be already underway; however, there is no detail given of when the fees ban will be introduced.
