The price of housing in London is pretty disgusting… but it seems as though renters have finally caught a break with the announcement today that letting agent fees are being banned across the entire United Kingdom.
The responsibility of paying the ridiculous administrative fees heaped on by letting agents will now shift from the tenant to the Landlord, which seems fair as they are, after all, the Lord of the Land. The news shall be officially announced by the chancellor in the Autumn Statement. Looks like your Bethnal Green flatshare just got cheaper, eh?!
